elcome 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 owners, Thomas and Valerie Pakenham have gardened here for over 50 years and added many new features. For more background history of the gardens and of the castle itself please see our History tab.

Please note that this is a perfect garden for children to explore. There is a special Children's Treasure Trail listing exciting things for them to look for throughout the gardens available in the Tearoom. We also welcome School Tours.
