Woodville Walled Garden

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.

Woodville Walled Garden will hold its Annual Harvest Festival on Saturday the 29th of September at 2 pm with guest speaker Klaus Laitenberger who will give a Powerpoint presentation on his recent travels to South America where he found some exciting new vegetable crops.  Many of these crops have amazing health benefits and show a potential for wider cultivation especially in Ireland. Followed by a tour of the dahlia collection at Woodville Walled Garden by head gardener Marie. 
Admission €12 including light refreshments. Booking essential. For further information please contact Margarita  087/9069191 or Marie 087/271197
