Knockabbey Castle & Gardens have been one of Ireland's best kept secrets.

In 1998 these sleeping gardens were purchased by Cyril O'Brien.

Currently under major restoration with the aid of the Great Gardens of Ireland Restoration Fund, these special gardens are being re-awoken. They reveal some of the finest historical water gardens to be found anywhere in the country, dating back to the 11th century. The gardens contain a wide range of magnificent specimen trees and the tulip tree ranks among the largest and finest in Ireland.

Today you can witness a unique opportunity to see these gardens under their final stages of restoration. Spend an afternoon strolling through 30 acres which include wildflower meadows, herbaceous borders, a Victorian Flower Garden and restored glasshouse. Experience the peace and tranquillity of this magical place.
