Description of Garden

Walled Garden

History Of Garden

In August 1997 the gates of Strokestown Park Walled Gardens were opened to the public, after a ten year restoration project. The Gardens had received little or no maintenance since the 1960 s and therefore had been totally reclaimed by nature. Many of the original features have been restored including the Croquet Lawn, the Lawn Tennis Court, The Summer House and a magnificent ornamental Lilly pond.

The Herbaceous Border is listed in the Guinness Book Of Records as the longest Herbaceous Border in Britain and Ireland. It truly is breathtaking having been planted in a rainbow colour scheme. Other equally beautiful features in the Garden include a formal Rose Garden, a wonderful Pergola, a wildflower Garden and a Fernery, to name but a few.
