Visit an 18th-century country estate at Belvedere House Gardens & Park, known for its spectacular Rococo ceilings. Richard Castle, a famous Anglo-German architect (who designed several well-known structures throughout Ireland, including Dublin's Leinster House), built this home in 1740 as a hunting lodge. The building is beloved for its Diocletian windows, 19th-century terraced gardens, and Rococo plasterwork ceilings, which are considered to be some of the best in the country. Tour this historic home and walk through its lush gardens, or visit to attend one of the site's many events, such as music festivals and garden theater performances.

  • Loved it. We thought we would just be there for a short visit, but we ended up staying around 4hours. The trails are great with lots to see and learn. The house is pretty impressive and the cafe has yummy food. It is good for all ages
  • Lovely place to visit. Its somewhere I would only visit once and not continual. Prices are a bit steep to just walk around the place. Playgrounds and kids areas are nothing special. It was just lovely to see the historic buildings. However the place is beautiful no doubt about it and with their latest addition of a fairy garden it's definitely worth a visit.
