The Gardens

The spectacular ornamental grounds and gardens surrounding the 19th century castle were designed by Daniel Robertson who is famed for the gardens at Powerscourt in Co. Wicklow.

Stroll through the grounds with over 200 varieties of trees and shrubs. Relax by the castle lakeside with its Gothic towers, waterfalls and statues. Enjoy a picnic in the sunken Italian garden or museum courtyard. Watch the peacocks strut by and display their finery. View the ruins of Rathlannon Castle.  The Gardens are open all year round and there is no need to book in advance.

Staged over two floors and occupying 1,600 square metres, the galleries offer something for everyone and cover all aspects of farming life from transport and farm machinery to farm crafts and furniture.
