  • One of the most beautiful places in Wexford to walk in summer sun or to take in autumn the autumn colours. We'll manicured gardens with ample routes through the grounds. Seating is spread throughout the gardens and there are picnic tables on site too. Very good value for money and recommended for families and dog friendly (dogs must be on leads).

  • Loved it my son had a great time looking at the machinery and my daughter who loves history took the notes and summary sheets and loved is so much she wrote a history essay on it. Lovely place to visit. I have only one complaint is that the man on the gift shop was following my kids tidying up of them when they picked up a toy a bit rude. Fantastic quiz to keek kids engaged.

  • Very very nice place. Clean public toilets. Good price in coffee shop. A lot of walkways to walls on.

  • I wish i had more time to acknowledge the times that have gone by. Great display of machienery in the museum which they tied to the local community. Famine times explained very well. I was surprised by the garden or estate, really beautiful. I didn't eat anything but the scones traditional apple pie and crumble looked lovely.

  • I love this place it's so well laid out. its very informative and there are some beautiful examples of letters written home from lands far and wide in famine times. There is a lovely example of a home from times past that reminds me of my grandmother's.
