Visiting Vandeleur Walled Garden

Visiting the Walled Garden is an experience that extends into the quaint courtyard setting of the Vandeleur Centre and its number of quality facilities:

Coffee Shop

There’s no better way to add to the pleasure of visiting a beautiful garden than topping it off with a fine cup of tea or coffee and some delicious treats. Whether it’s a slice of scrumptious home-made cake, a just-out-of-the-oven scone or freshly-cut sandwich – we’ve got just the thing to refresh and revive.

Gift Shop and Plant Market

Take home a special memento or gift from our on-site shop… or select your favourite plant, herb or bush from our plant sales area – straight from our garden to yours.

Exhibition

Enjoy a closer look at the interesting Vandeleur period by spending some time viewing our ‘Kilrush in Landlord Times’ display.

Children’s Entertainment

Enjoy the peace and quiet of your visit while the kids enjoy some great outdoor play time. Let them discover the Living Willow structure, play in the sand area and follow the fun of the Butterfly Trail.


Conference Facilities

Our modern and well-equipped conference area makes the perfect venue for an undisturbed, out-of-the-office meeting or workshop - with the Garden providing the ideal breakaway spot. The suite has capacity for up to 80 people and is available for meetings from early morning through to late evenings.
