The Tearoom at Tullynally is open 11am to 5pm. Covered outdoor and indoor seating available to enjoy wonderful coffee, teas and homemade refreshments. Contact Matt on firstname.lastname@example.org for group bookings.EXPLORE
The 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.
The Tearoom is open the same hours as the Gardens and you can choose to eat either in the cosy tearoom itself or in the sunny loggia outside.

What Our Visitors Say…
Comfortable Outdoor Seating in Covered open Courtyard
Friendly welcoming staff in this most magnificent of settings. Truly the most hidden gem of the midlands. Great sandwiches, quiche, coffee and cake.
Beautiful House and Gardens
We visited Tullynally Castle to see the gardens recently. The entrance fee is 8e and is very worth it. With that you get a great map of the gardens. I think you can also request a tree guide, although we didn’t. The trail is well sign-posted, with lots of points of interest. The gardens are so beautifully maintained, but not in an overly manicured way. It was a lovely relaxing walk, and we enjoyed watching the Swans and signets on the lake and also meeting the Llamas. The cafe in the courtyard of the castle had lovely fresh Quiche and salad, fresh baked goods, soup, etc. and lovely coffee. Definitely worth trip if you are in the area!
Terrific day out
We really enjoyed our day at Tullynally Castle. While the grounds are magnificent, the highlight for us was the chance to tour the castle. It was fascinating. It was made more enjoyable in the knowledge that the castle is also a home and is in constant use by a family. Some of the high points included the more humble aspects of castle life in times gone by – the laundry and drying rooms and the kitchens. We will definitely be back for another tour as it’s certainly warranted. Our tour guide, Magda, was excellent and balanced the interesting content with plenty of humour.
