The Gardens

Welcome to the Gardens at Tullynally. There are over 12 acres of garden in all, divided between walled gardens, extensive woodland gardens and 2 ornamental lakes. Much of the present layout dates from the early 1800s, but the current owner, Thomas Pakenham, and his late wife Valerie, have gardened here for over 50 years and added many new features.

Tearoom & Giftshop

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.

What Our Visitors Say…

Wonderful outing, immersed in nature

We had a fantastic day at Tullynally. We started with a coffee from the courtyard cafe while reading the pamphlet and getting our bearings on the map of the estate. We then spent hours walking through the gardens and the wider woodlands. It was a truly relaxing and joyous experience. Next time we will take the castle tour.

Customer Review

Beautiful gardens with a good balance of gravel and grass paths.

Great variety of plants, shrubs and mature trees. There are different themed gardens throughout the property all beautifully maintained. There is a questionnaire available for children with various landmarks and artefacts to find which is good fun and kept them busy and interested. Food and drinks can be purchased on site. A really great day out for all ages.
