Belvedere House and Gardens are located in Mullingar, County Westmeath and consists of The Victorian Walled Garden, The Enchanted Glen and The Parklands with woodland trials through the ancient wood.

The estate comprises one hundred and sixty acres of parkland with six kilometres of magnificent woodland and lakeshore walks, including the Narnia Trail. Several follies adorn the landscape including Ireland's largest folly, The Jealous Wall.

The restored Belvedere House is an 18th Century hunting/fishing lodge, designed by the renowned German architect Richard Castle for Robert Rochfort, later the First Earl of Belvedere. A fascinating walled garden, designed by Ninian Nevin in 1857, contains one of Ireland's finest collections of rare and special plants. The stable block is home to a modern visitor centre with fully licensed cafe.

Adjacent to the visitor centre are two children's play areas, with another at lakeshore along with a zip-line. Belvedere is open year round with a full calendar of events.

There is partial access for the disabled.

Tips from locals

Why not take a stroll through the woodlands which form the entire boundary of the estate and take in the stunning views of Lough Ennell as you explore.
