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.
