Free Days Out in County Laois, ROI


Heywood Gardens, Ballinakill, Co. Laois

Completed in 1912, the property consists of gardens, lakes, woodland and architectural features. 7km southeast from Abbeyleix, off R432 to Ballinakill, in the grounds of Heywood Community School it was transferred to State ownership in Nov 1993 from the Salesian Fathers who had taken care of it since 1941.

The formal Gardens form the centre-piece of the property and were designed by the famous architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens (1869-1944) and probably landscaped by Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932).

It is one of four Gardens in Irland designed by him, the others being in the War Memorial Park, Lambay Island and Howth Castle. The Gardens are composed of four elements linked by a terrace that ran along the front of the house which now no longer exists.

An extensive re-planting programme is currently underway.
