Visitor Recommendations

Find out what other visitors had to say about Tullynally Castle Gardens.

Bartle gave us a great introduction to the house and beautiful gardens. And Elaine from the cafe shop did miracles feeding our hungry mouths. All freshly prepared on site and served with a big smile!
For history lovers, woodland walkers and garden fanciers - this is a great place to visit. Part of the former horse stables are being used as a coffee shop but it doesn't disturb the original feel or atmosphere of the location.
Walled garden full of pears and orchard dripping with apples. The quietness is just fab.
Tea room to die for! Proper tea in a tea pot in proper cups & the best coffee & walnut cake ever (so good I took two slices home).

Tullynally Castle is 82 minutes from Dublin, 26 minutes from Mullingar and 6 minutes from Castlepollard.
