We strolled around the grounds on a lovely, sunny spring day and had a fantastic time. It was beautiful out and walked around for an hour or two, just strolling and taking pictures. Afterwards we had tea at the Circle of Friends Cafe nearby. A wonderful spring afternoon for all!

I would recommend a visit here if you are near the vicinity, the gardens and surrounding woods are a very pleasant walk. Children will love the bamboo tress and the underground cellars which you can wander into as you explore the gardens.

Visiting friends in Kilkenny Eire and was taken to Woodstock near Thomastown to see the colours of Autumn. Met a very friendly employee who offered to give us a guided tour around and explain about the house, grounds and trees and their history. For 4 euros car parking it is certainly value for money. Hope to return in summer with... More

We visited Woodstock Gardens around lunch time and had the place almost to ourselves. The cost is 4 euros per car and you must pay a machine to get out. When we arrived, one of the staff members was riding around in a golf cart. He offered to drive us around. It is a big place and we got to... More

We have been at Woodstock gardens a number of times and at different times of the year and it never fails to be impressive. An added addition to the splendid gardens has been developed, namely the walled garden with fruit trees and bushes and an array of plants for all seasons. Lovely herbaceous borders have been planted with a wide... More
