Loughcrew Historic Gardens and Coffee Shop. We have a café, gardens with walks, adventure centre and a stately home available for rent. We are 5kms from Oldcastle.
Take a walk through centuries of garden and landscape fantasy. The central area of approximately six acres includes a lime avenue, extensive lawns and terraces, magnificent herbaceous border and physic border. Within the gardens stand a mediæval mote and St. Oliver Plunkett's family church and Tower House.
A host of enchanting features are displayed in a setting steeped in atmosphere and history.
Meet Alice as she strolls through wonderland, encounter fairies and other creatures on woodland walks. Sculptures by acclaimed artist Ann Meldon Hugh and architectural treasures await around every corner!
The result of years of restoration can be seen in this stunning garden comprising a magnificent yew walk, a walled garden, a canal and a parterre.
The Loughcrew Coffee Shop is the heart of the Loughcrew experience. Modelled on a nearby classical gatelodge, our charming log-built reception lodge provides a warm welcome, comfort and shelter. Enjoy delicious coffees, teas and light meals, with the emphasis on quality and friendly service.
