The Gardens and parkland at Leixlip Manor have been under constant restoration since 1999. Our Gardeners have shown tremendous dedication in bringing the Gardens back to their former glory.
The Victorian Walled Garden:
The Walled Garden, a pure masterpiece of Georgian Design has uncovered many interesting plants, some quite exotic.
Now the garden has been restored to its former glory and is beautifully presented, an ideal location for your Wedding photos or even an Engagement photo shoot!.
The Woodland surrounding Leixlip Manor is a mixture of native hardwood trees and an interesting assortment of Californian Redwood trees.
Through careful management our policy is to think to the future, therefore we have replanted 3 species of hardwood tree to every tree that has fallen or been felled over the last number of years. Trees are checked on an annual basis for disease and ivy is removed. Occasional tree surgery is part and parcel of good woodland management thus ensuring the remainder of the trees remain in good shape for future generations.
A result of nurturing, the property has been the creation of an unofficial Game Sanctuary. Pheasants, Foxes (not necessarily the best of allies!), Rabbits, Hares, Squirrels, an abundance of birdsong are all residents of Leixlip Manor and Gardens. The occasional visit of our West Highland, Heidi adds to this idyllic mix.
