The 4 acre 18th century walled pleasure garden has been fully restored to its' original splendour. It's piece de resistance is its' herbaceous border which is recorded in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest herbaceous border in Britain & Ireland.

The Famine Museum uses a combination of original documents and images from the Strokestown Park collection to explain the circumstances of the Great Irish Famine of the 1840's. This collection boasts an extensive range of papers including actual letters written by the tenants on the Strokestown Estate at the time of the famine. Full restaurant facilities are available where you can complement your visit from a wide ranging menu. In August 1997 the gates of Strokestown Park Walled Gardens were opened to the public, after a ten year restoration project. The Gardens had received little or no maintenance since the 1960's and therefore had been totally reclaimed by nature. Many of the original features have been restored including the Croquet Lawn, the Lawn Tennis Court, The Summer House and a magnificent ornamental Lilly pond.
