Situated on the Castle East side the Arboretum features mature 19th Century tree planting and new species introduced over the last 30 years by Tullynally owner Thomas Pakenham, the world famous tree expert.

A specially designed Acorn House in a central glade approached by sweeping forest paths is reminiscent of a sacred grove and is overlooked by Knockeyon Hill at Lough Derravaragh, home to the Children of Lir.

Described by the novelist Maria Edgeworth as a “fairytale garden” the grounds of Tullynally provide for a fairytale wedding with the castle one of the largest private residences in Ireland.



Very popular Summer time outdoor venue covered with rambling roses and surrounded with herbaceous borders looking down over the formal lawns towards the melancholic weeping fountain. Situated outside the walls of the Victorian Walled Garden and based on a train station platform this location offers great views of the flower gardens planted and cared for by Castle owner Valerie Pakenham. The area remains private for the Civil Ceremony as garden visitors are diverted.
