Guided Tours of Doneraile Park & Gardens

We're thrilled to introduce a series of very special guided tours of OPW's Doneraile Park & Gardens for the 2022 season, with exclusive access to the 17th century private Pleasure Gardens, Parterre, and Walled Gardens.

This series of guided tours is the result of a close collaboration between the OPW, Visit Ballyhoura, knowledgeable Doneraile Tour Guides, and incredibly talented members of the Doneraile Drama Society Group, who will be narrating some of the Estate's history in period costumes, dressed as characters from the estate's history such as Edmund Spenser, Queen Elizabeth I, and Elizabeth St Leger, The Lady Freemason.

Come and enjoy this beautiful event filled with pageantry, history, and storytelling set in the majestic Doneraile Estate's surroundings. You will get exclusive access to the private Doneraile Estate Pleasure Grounds, Parterre, and walled garden with this ticket.

The tours can be booked via Eventbrite for a modest €5 per person (Eventbrite fees apply).

The upcoming tour dates are:

  • Sun 26th June
  • Sun 24th July
  • Sun 21st August
  • Sun 25th September
  • Sun 9th October
