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.
CaToCa fine food and giftware are managing the Tearooms in Tullynally Castle Gardens for Season 2016 opening on Saturday 2nd April.
CaToCa operate the catering facilities at several heritage properties and tourist attractions across the midlands including Emo Court, Belvedere House, Newbridge Arts Centre, Dun na Si Heritage park and Lough Boora park.
The newly renovated Tullynally Tearooms will open with a range of exciting menus using local fresh produce, and CaToCa will also offer a discerning range of high quality gift ware pieces and souvenirs.
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!
