Beautiful house and gardens, extensive walking trails around a man made lake. Gardens free to the public, plenty of parking and tea rooms on site also. Great for afternoon walks.

Take a few hours for visiting this beautiful house and gardens. take a tour with the Guide. Extra ordinary story about the history of the house and the noble family. Attractive almost cosy interior.

Emo Court has a wonderful tour through the house, which is always led by a incredibly knowledgable and friendly guide. The gardens are a pleasure to walk around too. The Fr Browne exhibit is fascinating for photography fans like me, or Titanic buffs.
