Things to do

Killruddery’s 17th Century Garden sees many visitors over the year. We see tourists and people most interested in the culture and history that surrounds killruddery, we see young families who simply want to run free on large green lawns and roll down grassy banks, we see couples catching some time for themsleves, we see people who are interested in our events programme, we see gardeners, bird watchers, nature lovers and many many more. We are delighted to see each and every one of them enjoy the garden, it is a pleasure to share such a rare gem.
