The restored Victorian Walled Garden, Double Peach House, Dog Kennels and Octagonal Sunken Gardens lie awaiting your discovery at the Battle of the Boyne Visitor Centre – Oldbridge House.
Situated in the picturesque ‘bend of the Boyne’ and laid out on the famous battle site, the grounds of the Oldbridge Estate offer walks through an 18th and 19th century garden landscape.
In addition to the very old espalier Pear Trees, one hundred Blood of the Boyne apple trees have been planted in the walled garden – every year we collect the crop with the help of the local community. The recently planted herbaceous border contains many traditional plants and flowers and some medicinal plants too.
The Gardener’s Bothy now houses a permanent exhibition about the Walled Gardens at Oldbridge and other gardens nearby.
Throughout the year, we offer a host of garden themed events: window box workshops, ‘meet the Victorian gardener’ walks and talks, theatre evenings, floral art workshops etc.
The gardens are free to visit and you can enjoy delicious food and drinks in the Tea Room Pavilion located in the garden.
Open all year round, daily except Christmas and New Year.
Free of charge to the Gardens and Garden Exhibition.
Last admission is one hour before closing time.
