I Want to Live in a Castle | Tullynally Castle Gardens

Friday, 23 June 2017
Tullynally Castle Gardens (also known as Pakenham Hall Castle) is a country house located near Castlepollard in Co. Westmeath, Ireland. 

The Castle

The Castle itself is in a gothic style and has over 120 rooms which have housed the Pakenham family, who are now the Earls of Longford, for the past 350 years. There is currently three generations of the Pakenham family living in the Castle and so it is not open to guests, which was quite disappointing for me as I would have loved to see inside.

The Gardens

Tullynally Castle is surrounded by 12 acres of park land and gardens, which feature a walled garden, llamas, wonderful caricature-style sculptures and carvings. As stated on their website, most of the current layout dates from the early 1800s but the current owners have added some features over the last 50 years.

This map (found on the Tullynally website) shows the layout of the castle grounds. I loved the day out that my family and I spent here at Tullynally and it's especially great for families, even with prams, as there are pathways and relatively even ground.
