I had previously done a post praising the delights of Doneraile Park. I haven’t had the chance to visit since, until last week when I was working in the area and decided to have lunch in the newly opened and refurbished Doneraile Court Tea Rooms as seen below.
But it is not the delightful Tea Rooms that I will be focussing on today. Just outside of the courtyard is a stunning lane with old walls on either side that caught my attention.
The big question for me, was what treasure lies behind these marvellous old walls?
And as you can see the walls hide an absolute delight that is currently being restored to its former glory.
I am delighted to see the investment that the OPW put into this hidden tarnished gem, and the gardens once fully restored on their own will be worth the visit. For more information of the historical element of the house and gardens just click here.
