Vandeleur Walled Garden

Kilrush, County Clare

An open walled garden located near Kilrush, County Clare

Tourism Ireland

Beautiful old stonewalls enclose this sheltered Walled Garden (2.158 acres) which is set among 420 acres of native woodland. Formerly part of the Vandeleur Family Demesne, this garden has been restored around the old path system with a horizontal maze, unusual water-features and a free-standing Victorian-style working glasshouse which is accessible to visitors. The garden specializes in many unusual and tender plants that thrive in the area's uniquely western latitude micro climate. Chess enthusiasts can test their skills by playing the giant outdoor Chess game. Children can enjoy the living willow structure, sand area and follow the butterfly trail. A collection of old farm machinery enhances the courtyard. The Vandeleur Picture Exhibition and part of the heritage exhibition Kilrush in Landlord Times are on display in the centre.
