Breathtaking old gardens Apr 06, 2011
I had no camera on this trip so i am deeply disappointed i cannot post up photos of this attraction to intice people to see it but i cannot recommend it more.

The drive from Kilkenny town to Inistioge where the gardens are located is a picturesque half an hour drive through gorgeous countryside, full of wonderful greens, scatterings of sheep and cows and mountains as far as the ey can see.

The gardens cost four euro into which pretty much just is the cost for the car, if u park in Inistioge and walk to them they'd be free in.

First off you walk down this wonderful Fir-lined avenue. The trees are very old. The ruins of the house in which the original family who lived there stands forlorn and crumbling on the grounds of the gardens. There is a magnificant walled garden. When we went it was in April so the flowers had not started to bloom yet but i'd say when they are in bloom it's a colourful place to see :) The view from the gardens overlooks all of the village of Inistioge and the surrounding mountains. Amazing!
