The colourful gardens include camellias, rhododendrons, magnolias and a range of rare and mature trees which are lovingly kept by the owners.

Tourin House & Gardens is about 5km from Cappoquin and the heritage town of Lismore in County Waterford. The main house was built in 1840 in the fashionable Italianate villa style of the era. The main feature inside is a fine double oak staircase. Overlooking the River Blackwater, the original historic 16th century tower house still stands and can be seen from the garden. Tourin House is home to the Jameson family, of Irish Whiskey fame. The present generation are artists and passionate gardeners.

The gardens at Tourin House extend over 2 hectares and include a walled garden, pleasure garden and more. A fine collection of camellias, rhododendrons, magnolias and other shrubs give a beautiful seasonal display of colour. Rare and mature trees include a champion London plane tree. Lovely walks along garden and woodland paths lead to Tourin Quay and a pond with wild duck and other wildlife.

Visitors are welcome to enjoy the gardens and visit the house at certain times from the 1st of April to September 30th, Tuesday to Saturday. It also opens during Heritage Week in August.
