Find yourself delightfully lost in the gardens at Ardtarmon House. The grounds were developed around 1900 and have been expanded since. Original paths have been reopened and the shelter belts towards the west extended. There is an extensive fruit orchard with thirty apple varieties and other fruit for you to admire. A weather station is also located here with rainfall records since 1985 and temperature since 1994.
Our hydrangeas will welcome you as you drive up the driveway to Ardtarmon House
Follow this path and you'll head down towards the beach - peace and tranquillity
Follow this pathway down to the waters edge admiring the fauna and flora and arrive at your own secluded beach looking out onto Drumcliff Bay and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.
Alternative energy & eco-awareness - our 8 acre field of willow trees used as our main heating system
Eight acres are devoted to growing willow as fuel for the wood chip boiler for central heating in all the buildings except the Gate Lodge - too far away at three hundred and fifty metres. We are actively pursuing a green agenda in many respects including house and grounds management. Feel free to ask us about latest developments.
