Beaulieu’s beautiful four acre garden was probably laid out in the early Georgian period. Set on a well-drained, South facing terraced slope, the garden remains true to its original grid design, with box-lined paths, herbaceous borders, fruit trees, knot garden, vegetable plots and a recently restored Georgian pavilion. Lovely views overlook the Boyne estuary and an old, red red brick wall shelters vibrant flower borders, which look their best June-August.
If you like unusual plants, the aspect of the garden make it an ideal setting for tender species, such as crinodendron, eucryphia, abutilons, giant tree echiums and variegated mallows flowering between May and July.
The garden is managed organically with a no-dig philosophy.
