Visitor Recommendations

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

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.
A gem off the beaten track, well worth a visit for a walk around the gardens. Also the connection with the Myth of the Children of Lir as Tullynally translates as the Hill of the Swans.
They provide a pocket map with two loops and I would recommend doing the longer one as it really doesn't take all day. You could do it all in an hour and a half at a leisurely pace.
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.
