The beautiful landscaped estate of Wells House and Gardens is located in the heart of Wexford. Discover hidden treasures surrounded by mature plants and trees, relax in the Victorian Terrace Gardens or stroll the Lady Frances Woodland Walk.
The estate of Wells House and Gardens is located in County Wexford and comprises 450 acres of beautiful landscaped grounds, waiting to be explored. The gardens were designed by renowned architect Daniel Robertson in the 1830s; he introduced features like the Terrace Gardens, Radiating Parterre, Arboretum and Main Avenue. The Terraced Garden and Woodland Walk have recently been restored and are now open to visitors.
The Victorian Terrace Gardens were created in a formal design, based on Robertson’s original plans. Two woodland walks—the Lady Frances Woodland Walk and the Mogue’s Walk—contain hidden treasures in a verdant landscape of mature plants and trees. Families will enjoy the Wishing Well, Lady Frances’ Daffodils and the Craft Courtyard on the site of the old stables.
An adventure playground for children boasts zip-lines, swings, slides and climbing frames, conveniently located next to the picnic area. At Wells House Archery, the resident archer can demonstrate how to shoot a bow at the only 3D course in Ireland.
Light snacks, refreshments and lunch is served at the Little Kitchen in Mrs Stone’s Pantry, while the newly refurbished Oak Tree offers coffee, lunch and afternoon tea. A range of family events take place at mid-term and across the summer holidays, making Wells House and Gardens the ideal family destination in Wexford.
