Belvedere House Gardens & Park is a fascinating Georgian estate open year round with a varied calendar of events including Narnia at Christmas and family events at Easter and Halloween. Belvedere House is a fully restored Georgian Villa situated in 160 acres of lakeside parkland, punctuated by numerous follies including the famous Jealous Wall. Belvedere once the home of the Wicked Earl Robert Rochfort who infamously locked up his second wife Mary Molesworth for 31 years on a spurious charge of infidelity is now owned and operated by Westmeath County Council.
Tullynally Castle and Gardens has been home to the Pakenhan family since the 17th century. The castle, still lived in by the family today, has been the home to the Earls of Longford for more than 350 years. Built in the 17th century, the house was designed as a Georgian mansion, and later, as a Gothic revival castle. The castle offers guided tours of the unique collection of furniture and pictures, the Victorian kitchen and laundries, and the gardens. The gardens are made up of numerous smaller gardens and ponds such as the Woodland Garden, the River Sham, the Flower Garden, the Kitchen Garden, the Swan Pool, and the Grotto Path.
