  • A sense of antiquity prevails as one enters the gates of Ballinlough. Perched on a hill overlooking two lakes, the 17th century castle is the home of Sir John and Lady Nugent. The gardens have been under restoration since 1994, and are now open to the public, together with the lakeside and woodland walks. The walled garden covers 1.2ha, and is divided into four walled sections. On view are herbaceous borders, grass tennis court, lily pond, rose garden, a herb and soft fruit garden and a well stocked orchard. From the walled gardens, a white door leads to the lakeside walks with the charming water garden and its rustic summerhouse. The walk around the lake affords dramatic views of the castle and its demesne. Ballinlough Castle Gardens have been restored with the assistance of an ERDF grant through the Great Gardens of Ireland Restoration Programme. Read more ….
