The gardens surrounding this late 18th century house were laid out towards the end of the 19th century with plantings of many fine specimens including rhododendron arboreum, magnolia soulangeana ‘Alba’, and Camellia japonica.

Also included are a number of specimen mature trees, including a fine Chilean myrtle, Luma apiculara, planted c. 1880. When the Butler family acquired the property, a white garden in a sheltered enclosure behind the house was added together with a wild meadow which reaches its peak in mid-June.

Described as one of ‘Wicklow’s finest gardens’ (Jane Powers), the garden are open each year in aid of The Wicklow Hospice.
