Explore a maze amidst an 18th century walled garden, see rare tropical plants & enjoy scenic walks.

A hornbeam maze at the centre of an eighteenth century walled garden is the focus of interest at Seaforde. Its intricate pattern can easily be observed from above by looking down from a new Moghul Tower. The lawns surrounding the maze are divided and fringed with mixed tree and shrub borders which wonderfully declare Irelands capacity to play host to plants from many parts of the world. In particular watch out for members of the eucryphia family, elegant evergreen shrubs from the southern hemisphere of which Seaforde has the National Collection. A fine tree and shrub nursery adjoins the garden. The Butterfly House is also on the grounds, see record entitled, Seaforde Tropical Butterfly House.
