Birr Castle & Gardens

within 30 milesAlthough the castle is not open to the public, the beautiful gardens are. A carriage ride through the demesne is the best way to experience Birr Castle. The castle is home to a giant telescope that once held the title of the “world’s largest” as well as the largest grove of giant redwoods outside California.
