The Walled Garden at Woodville has been beautifully restored with colourful herbaceous borders, espaliered fruit trees, vegetable garden, rose garden and a fountain. Daphne Shackleton advised on the restoration which included reinstating a dovecote which is one of the few remaining “Garden Follies” in the West of Ireland and is home to a family of white fantail doves.
Woodville has a museum outlining the connection to Lady Augusta Gregory to this historic house and garden. Come for a visit to this romantic secret garden in the West of Ireland and enjoy the sights, scents and colours contained within the original stone walls.
Gardens are open from Easter to September, daily, 10am to 6pm. Last admission 5pm.
We organise garden visits and garden-orientated tours in Ireland and overseas. We have a winter lecture programme, practical gardening workshops in Spring and Summer, a list of Partner Gardens, the RHSI Journal published three times a year, the RHSI restoration of the walled garden at Russborough as our charity focus and an exciting Bicentenary Seminar planned for the RDS in September 2016. RHSI members have priority booking privileges but many events are also open to other interested gardeners.
