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.

A visit to Belvedere is a superb day with a difference, whether you are part of a gardening group, historical society, active retirement association, family gathering or group of friends.

Christmas at Belvedere House Gardens and Park

Visit Green Santa at Belvedere House Gardens and Park this Christmas. 

Belvedere’s traditional Victorian Green Santa will be arriving at Belvedere on Saturday December 8th at 10.45am and will start meeting children from 11.00am. He will be in his Magical Grotto along with his Impish Elves over that weekend and each subsequent weekend from 11.00am to 5.30pm up to and including Sunday December 23rd.

Green Santa at Belvedere offers a great value and quality Christmas experience with a difference. Children booked in to see Green Santa will get a potted Holly Tree to bring home with their family to plant out and watch it grow with them over the years, as a lasting and fond memory of their visit to Green Santa at Belvedere. Every child will also receive some Reindeer Food and the customary Victorian Candy.

This is a “booking only” event, as Santa with so much to do before Christmas, can only be at Belvedere for a limited time and therefore he can only see children who have booked their timeslot to visit him.  Online pre-booking for this event is therefore essential and all Green Santa Bookings will include entry to Belvedere House, Gardens, Park and Play Areas. 

For those who want to walk the outdoor trails after their Green Santa visit please dress appropriately for the weather on the day.
