Events for all ages at Belvedere House, Gardens and Park

Belvedere House, Gardens and Park is a stunning Georgian house and large estate on the eastern shore of Lough Ennell near Mullingar. Within 160 acres, visitors can enjoy our magnificent period house, lakeshore walks, woodlands trails and stunning Victorian Walled Garden. The extensive estate has 10km of woodland trails, lawns, and gardens making for a pleasant day out along the lakeshore.

The grounds include four children’s play areas. The Lakeside Café is open daily offering a varied menu and gift shop. A number of fascinating follies dot the estate, including the Jealous Wall, a huge Gothic folly, the largest in Ireland.

There have been many fascinating owners who have all left their mark, and an optional audio-guide tour provides visitors with information on the colourful history of the estate.

Belvedere and surrounding areas are now serviced by a new bus route operated by Transport for Ireland. For the summer there will be departures to and from Belvedere three times a day.

Belvedere is open daily, with late summer opening. Great value membership is available to enjoy the estate and its natural beauty year-round.

Belvedere has a number of events throughout the summer. In June and July we welcome back Chapterhouse Outdoor Theatre for a performance of Little Women (June 29) and Beauty and the Beast (July 9). On Wednesday July 24, we will host an outdoor performance of The Little Mermaid. Our Plant Fair is back on Sunday July 28 from 11am.
