About Belvedere House and Gardens

Belvedere House and Gardens in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath.

The estate comprises 160 acres of parkland with 6 kms of magnificent woodland and lakeshore walks. Several follies adorn the landscape including Ireland's largest folly: The Jealous Wall. The restored Belvedere House is an 18th century hunting/fishing lodge designed by the renowned German architect Richard Castle for Robert Rochfort, later the 1st Earl of Belvedere.

A fascinating walled garden, designed by Ninian Nevin in 1857, contains one of Ireland's finest collections of rare and special plants.

The stable block is home to a modern visitor centre with multi-media show, exhibitions, cafe and giftshop. Adjacent to the visitor centre is the animal sanctuary and children's play area. There is also a delightful tram, which provides guided tours around a section of the parkland on selected days throughout the year.

This attraction is suitable for all the family and is open every day.
