Benvarden is described by Terence Reeves Smith in his Guide to Irish Gardens as ‘undoubtedly the best in private hands’
Benvarden’s two acre walled garden has been restored and replanted in the last forty years.
Georgina Cambell notes that the ‘star in this garden is the sunburst rose garden with hybrid tea roses planted in blocks of colour around an Italianate fountain. Exuberant old fashioned roses fountain over arches down the central gravelled walk and there is a model vegetable garden with a restored bothy’
The Woodland Pond has been reclaimed and further clearances and planting are in progress. The cobbled Stable Yard is an unusual diamond-shape and contains stables, a coach house and a tea room. There is also a small collection of farm and garden implements.
