Burtown House is a historic Quaker house located in County Kildare and is surrounded by a wealth of farmland walks and beautiful flower gardens. It is close to a variety of important historic attractions and is the perfect stop on a holiday itinerary around Kildare.
Built in 1710 by the Quaker Robert Power, today Burtown House has parking facilities, toilets, a shop, gallery and a modern coffee shop that serves tea, coffee, homemade biscuits, cakes and food prepared with organic, seasonal produce from the on-site kitchen garden.
It is surrounded by flower gardens, vegetable patches, parklands and woodland walks. Burtown House also boasts a series of secret gardens, ideal for a wander with the whole family. The gardens come to life in early February with a spectacular show of winter aconites, snowdrops, cyclamen and early spring bulbs, followed by many varieties of daffodils, hellebores and trilliums.
