Welcome to the Gardens at Tullynally. There are over 12 acres of garden in all, divided between walled gardens, extensive woodland gardens and 2 ornamental lakes. Much of the present layout dates from the early 1800s, but the current owners, Thomas and Valerie Pakenham have gardened here for over 50 years and added many new features.
Children's Discovery Trail
Tullynally is a perfect garden for children to explore. There is a special Children’s Discovery Trail listing exciting things for them to look for throughout the gardens to download HERE. We also welcome School Tours, please see Contact information.
Thomas Pakenham has created a Tree Trail of his favourite trees, some of which he planted and some of which are over 200 years old. Download HERE.
Tearoom & Giftshop
The Tearoom (which also serves as our Ticket Office) is set in the Castle Courtyard. You can reach it direct from the carpark (signposted) through the original archway through the old Georgian stable block. The Tearoom was once home to the Earl’s hunters and coachhorses and you can still see recesses for the individual stalls, and peer out through Georgian windows at his handsome clocktower.
What Our Visitors Say…
Wonderful outing, immersed in nature
We had a fantastic day at Tullynally. We started with a coffee from the courtyard cafe while reading the pamphlet and getting our bearings on the map of the estate. We then spent hours walking through the gardens and the wider woodlands. It was a truly relaxing and joyous experience. Next time we will take the castle tour.
A wonderful special place! So lucky to have this locally to where we live. Garden of Eden
Beautiful gardens with a good balance of gravel and grass paths.
Great variety of plants, shrubs and mature trees. There are different themed gardens throughout the property all beautifully maintained. There is a questionnaire available for children with various landmarks and artefacts to find which is good fun and kept them busy and interested. Food and drinks can be purchased on site. A really great day out for all ages.
