A short drive away

Heywood Gardens (33km)

The eighteenth-century romantic landscape consists of gardens, lakes, woodland and architectural features. It was transferred to State ownership in November 1993 from the Salesian Fathers who had taken care of it since 1941. The formal Gardens form the centre-piece of the property and were designed by the famous architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens (1869-1944) and probably landscaped by Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932). It is one of four Gardens in this country designed by him, the others being in the War Memorial Park, Lambay Island and Howth Castle. The Gardens are composed of four elements linked by a terrace that ran along the front of the house which now no longer exists.

Rock of Dunamase (13km)

The Rock of Dunamase is an imposing and magnificent example of the remains of a Celtic fortification. An interesting historic site found just outside Portlaoise in County Laois, the Rock of Dunamase is one of Ireland’s popular tourist attractions.
