Whatever the season there's always something new to see....

Let your imagination run riot among the unusual plants, colours, sculptures and magical features in one of the most beautiful gardens in Northern Ireland.

Carved from the County Down landscape, the garden has grown from the 19th century beginnings of the Reverend John Moore and his nephew Hugh Armytage Moore. Their vision helped create a place where you can leave the outside world behind and immerse yourself in nature’s beauty.

The gardens are a mix of formal and informal spaces with many unusual vistas and unique plants from across the world. The trees, plants and shrubs range in ages, size and colour and create a spectacle throughout the year.

Rowallane Garden is ideal for leisurely walks, afternoon teas in the cafe or just simply relaxing on a seat in the walled garden.

Journey through our garden and discover the secret worlds within our world apart.
