An historic garden

In his book "Gardens of Ireland", Terence Reeve-Smyth describes Benvarden as having one of the few fully-maintained walled gardens in Ireland and one the best in private hands.

The walled garden of 2 acres is divided into a flower garden and a vegetable and fruit garden. There are extensive pleasure gardens including a pond, river and Victorian bridge.


While dogs are not allowed in the walled garden, they are permitted in the grounds on leads and poop-bags must be used.
