Vandeleur Walled Garden & CentreVandeleur Walled Garden & Centre

Beautiful old stonewalls enclose this sheltered Walled Garden (2.158 acres) which is set among 420 acres of native woodland. Formerly part of the Vandeleur Family Demesne, this garden has been restored around the old path system with a horizontal maze, unusual water-features and a free-standing Victorian-style working glasshouse which is accessible to visitors. The garden specializes in many unusual and tender plants that thrive in the area's uniquely western latitude micro climate. Chess enthusiasts can test their skills by playing the giant outdoor Chess game.

Children can enjoy the living willow structure, sand area and follow the butterfly trail. A collection of old farm machinery enhances the courtyard. The “Vandeleur Picture Exhibition” and part of the heritage exhibition “Kilrush in Landlord Times” are on display in the centre.

So come and visit this lovely garden and have a rest in our Coffee Shop and enjoy some delicious homemade food. Don't forget to visit our Gift Shop. You might just find the one little gift you have been looking for. A wide variety of plants are available for sale in the courtyard. Our conference facilities are ideal for meetings, trainings,etc.
