Larchill & Grove Gardens
Larchill Arcadian Gardens
The Larchill Arcadian Gardens are situated near Kilcock and are the last surviving example of the mid-eighteenth century ferme ornée style of garden. They represent the transition from the formal garden to the eighteenth century Capability Brown style of the fully landscaped park.
The gardens cover an area of 26 ha, with ten follies set around a circular walk through beech avenues. Features include a restored lake with its land fortress, a Greek temple, walled garden and pergola. The parkland also contains one of Ireland’s largest ranges of rare animal species, including 15 rare varieties of sheep.
Grove Gardens & Tropical Bird Sanctuary
Grove Gardens (Kells) has one of the largest collections of clematis in Europe. There are over 300 varieties of clematis growing in the four acres site, as well as herbaceous perennials, alpine and rock plants. There is also a considerable rose garden with over 400 plants of English, French and other rose varieties. The tropical bird sanctuary is home to a significant number of rare and exotic bird varieties.
