elcome to the Gardens at Tullynally. Like the castle itself, they date back over 350 years. The Pakenhams (later Earls of Longford) settled here in the 17th century and three generations still live here as their family home. The layout of the gardens and magnificent parkland date mainly from the early 1800s, but the present owners, Thomas and Valerie Pakenham have added many new features. Take the main path to the walled Flower Garden and visit the llamas and the stone “Nandi" (sacred Indian bulls) next door or take the path to the Grotto with fantastic carvings by a local artist. Or follow the Forest Walk to the Chinese garden and onto the Lower Lake with its pair of swans.

Everywhere you will find superb trees and views – and pretty ornamental summer houses to rest in. For tree enthusiasts, there is a special Tree Trail to follow and for children an exciting Treasure Trail to explore.

After exploring the gardens, we suggest you return to the sunny Tearoom in the Castle Courtyard which offers teas, coffee and delicious homemade food throughout the day – And don't miss the splendid family coach on display. 

As the castle itself is still a private family home, it is not open to casual visitors, but guided tours of the main rooms can usually be arranged for groups (minimum 20) – E-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots.
