Woodville Walled Garden

Woodville Walled Garden is nestled in the foothills of the Slieve Aughty Mts. on the N66 between Loughrea and Gort. This oasis of tranquillity has been lovingly restored to its former glory. On arriving you are greeted by our resident white fantailed doves at home in one of the few remaining garden follies in the West of Ireland.

The garden features espaliered fruit trees, herbaceous borders with interest all year round from spring bulbs to a riot of summer colour. Lady Gregory patron to W.B.Yeats was a frequent visitor to Woodville , one time home to her brother Harry Persse. Woodville and its experience does not disappoint and is a must visit for gardeners and historians alike.

You can buy rare and unusual plants from the garden. Each day at 2.00pm guided tours of the garden and history of Woodville and its connection to Lady Augusta Gregory are given by the head gardener Marie.

Always contact garden for admission and opening hours
