Located in the picturesque village of Inistioge, these restored Victorian Gardens and Aboretum are one of Ireland’s finest. Tea Rooms, Walled Gardens and magnificent views over the village make this a memorable destination. Pop down to Inistioge to wander into the village, location of the famous film ‘Circle of Friends’ by Maeve Binchy and situated right on the river.


This river-side village is full of things for everyone to do. Pop into Mount Brandon Pottery School and be creative, hire a bike to explore the area at Waterside Bike & Hike, relax in one of the many eateries or public houses along the river and visit Duiske Abbey for some heritage.
