he Tearoom (which also serves as our Ticket Office) is set in the Castle Courtyard. You can reach it direct from the carpark (signposted) through the original archway through the old Georgian stable block. The Tearoom was once home to the Earl's hunters and coachhorses and you can still see recesses for the individual stalls, and peer out through Georgian windows at his handsome clocktower.
Enjoy some afternoon tea and home made cakes in the cosy Tullynally Tearooms after your visit to the Gardens. Newly refurbished and with a new operator, Elaine Guinan, for the 2018 season you also purchase your garden tickets here. Tearooms are open 11am - 5pm Thursday-Sunday 31st March - 30th September and all during Heritage Week.

While you are in the Courtyard, don't miss seeing the magnificent Pakenham family coach which is on display in one of the coachhouses here. It dates from 1840 and has all its original fittings, including a special compartment to conceal a gun in case of highwaymen. It is now used only for special occasions, such as a family wedding, but is said sometimes on moonlight nights to go out for a drive on its own!
