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 colonnaded 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 rare plants, the aspect of the garden make it an ideal setting for tender species, such as abutilons, giant tree echiums and variegated mallows which are flowering between May and July.
Guided tours to Beaulieu must be booked in advance. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
