Woodstock Gardens and Arboretum

Woodstock Gardens and Arboretum are located in the Village of Inistioge on the banks of the River Nore in County Kilkenny. Woodstock gardens were once considered one of the great gardens of Ireland dating to the Victorian Period from 1840-1900 and attracted many visitors. Since 1999 Kilkenny County Council has been undertaking an ambitious scheme of restoration to return to these gardens to their former glory.

Phase three of the restoration project is now complete. Features recently reconstructed or restored include the walled garden, fountain, flower terraces, yew walk, rustic summer house (Knox's Bower), Turner Seat, Rockery, Monkey Puzzle and Noble Fir Avenues, and the circular Turner Conservatory.
