Few great houses and gardens are open the year round in ireland, so this is a welcome place to visit out of season. An impressive driveway leads to the unusual faux Elizabethen mansion of a design rare in Ireland, which is stuffed with large grim flat-fronted Georgian piles. The gardens are limited but were full of colour in late October. There are courtyards in process of becoming craft workshops and shops, which will be an additional attraction, as is a good cafe. The house interior comes as a bit of a shock after the slightly run-down exterior. (We thought the house abandoned when we approached it) Worth visiting if you are not put off by the playgrounds, archery and othe populist side shows.
