Belvedere House Gardens and Park

This magnificent 160 acre Lakeside Estate boasts a fully restored Georgian Villa, built in 1740 by the famous Architect Richard Castles for Robert Rochfort, later Lord Belvedere (“The Wicked Earl”).

The Belvedere House, Gardens & Park estate has a fascinating Victorian Walled Garden, including one of Ireland's finest collections of rare and special plants.

The naturalistic designed 18th century parkland, punctuated with Romantic Follies includes the largest in Ireland; “The Jealous Wall”. 

Within the Visitor Services Centre is a licensed Restaurant and Gift Shop, plus 4 outdoor children’s play areas & many picnic areas.
