The Earls of Meath were responsible for the creation of Killruddery gardens. The formal layout was conceived by the French gardener Bonet, a disciple of the great landscape designer André le Nôtre, in 1682.
Notable features include the Angles, the Long Ponds, the Wilderness, the Sylvan Theatre, Lime Walks and the Beech Hedge Pond.
