Visit Loughcrew’s historic gardens and spend a day ambling through a diverse, tranquil landscape with your friends and family. There is plenty to entertain all ages! Children love our wonderful Fairy Trail while gardeners enjoy investigating the beautiful array of trees and plants which can be found.

It is no surprise that County Meath is the heritage capital of Ireland and Loughcrew plays a part in giving it this title. The remains of a medieval motte as well as 17th century features including St Oliver Plunkett’s family church, a corn mill and the visible outline of a longhouse can all be explored here. We have created a dedicated history of the garden page here which includes more detail.

You can wander through the 400 year old yew walk and stroll under the boughs of the lime avenue – which smells sensational – too. Furthermore, you can admire the symbolic statues and sculptures dotted about on the extensive lawns.

There are a number of peaceful walks within the grounds which can be taken at any pace. Additionally, information boards have been placed around the gardens to help you get the most out of your visit. Make sure you keep an eye out for fairies as you explore too!
