About Belvedere House & Gardens
“The restored Belvedere House is an 18th Century hunting/fishing lodge, designed by the renowned German architect Richard Castle for Robert Rochfort, later the First Earl of Belvedere.
A fascinating walled garden, designed by Ninian Nevin in 1857, contains one of Ireland’s finest collections of rare and special plants.
The Georgian House and Estate is now owned and operated by Westmeath County Council and is open daily all year round with seasonal closing hours. The estate comprises one hundred and sixty acres of parkland with six kilometres of magnificent woodland and lakeshore walks, including the Narnia Trail. Several follies adorn the landscape including Ireland’s largest folly – The Jealous Wall.”
Adjacent to the visitor centre are two children’s play areas, with another at lakeshore along with a zip-line. Belvedere is open year round with a full calendar of events including Land Of Light.
