Stepping into Woodstock Gardens and Arboretum

 

In Inistioge, County Kilkenny, there’s a garden with an observatory-inspired cafe. It’s located 1 kilometer from the village. Woodstock Gardens and Arboretum boasts of its Rose walled garden, Noble Fir walk, Monkey Puzzle Avenue, and a cafe that looks like an observatory.

The admission fee to the place is €4 per car (includes all the occupants) giving access to all the gardens, woodland trails, and the tea room. Not bad, right?

If you’re looking a tranquil place within County Dublin – whether you’re alone, with friends or family, or with your dog, this is one of those places you’ll enjoy.

Now let’s have a look at my shots!

This tree must be so old! Look at that size!

Monkey Puzzle Avenue Walk

The trees were called monkey puzzle because they were indeed a puzzle for the monkeys on how to climb them. ^_^

I took us about 3 hours to roam the place, with the inclusion of time to take pictures.

The place is dog-friendly, just remember to keep them on a leash and clean up after them.

 

Opening Hours : 

Summer: (April to September) 9am to 7.30 pm

Winter: (October to March) 9am to 4pm
