Strokestown Park Gardens

The beautifully restored 6 acre Walled Gardens at Strokestown Park
give the visitor a complete insight into horticultural practices in Ireland
from the 1740s to the present day. Original features and structures
are what make this garden truly magical. These include the wonderful
decorative gates which were given to Olive Pakenham Mahon as an
engagement present in 1914; the folly overlooking the lily pond; the
Georgian teahouse and the Georgian glasshouses which house the
vineries, fig trees and peach trees. The beautiful croquet lawn is still
in use. The pond is one of the oldest features in the garden dating
back to 1780. Ginkgo trees and a mature Liriodendron tulipifera tree
are features of the herbaceous border.

Produce from the original working gardens are grown by volunteers
and used in the busy restaurant in Strokestown Park House which is
open all year round.
