The grounds contain a wide variety of trees and shrubs representing the best aspects of a formal and wild garden. They are greatly enhanced by two lakes with folly towers and are populated with a range of waterfowl. Pleasant pathways meander through the pleasure grounds they are superbly presented to the visitor. In the old world former farmyard is the extensive and well laid out Irish Agricultural Museum. In July and August a small café here provides teas. The grounds also have a large and well-equipped picnic area.
