A beautiful visit
juli 2021
When you first pull in, you will mistakenly think that you're here to see some ruins. The exterior is something to marvel at, yes. "But that's it? Just an empty, hulking building?" you'll think.

Wait, dear reader. Just wait.

For beyond the walls of Ducketts Grove is an immaculate walled pleasure garden that, upon crossing the threshold into, will take your breath away. If you're like me, you'll stand there for a minute and let the magic of this place wash over you for a minute before you begin your rounds, taking in what must surely be painstaking curation. Every imaginable variety of flowering and otherwise interesting plants have a home here and are just waiting for your discovery.

Stay a while. Linger and appreciate the exotic, simple, or that which bloomed and wilted long ago wherever you call home but is still vibrant and in bloom here.

While there is much to cover here, including the house and grounds that tell the story of the Ducketts, the walled garden proves to be one of those magical places where I prefer to spend my time when I come here. Very worth your visit.

Hi strudeI01, On behalf of Carlow Tourism and Carlow County Council, thanks so much for taking the time to review your recent visit to Duckett's Grove. A very important review from you too might I add. This is so because it pays proper attention to the huge efforts of our Gardener, Mr. Michael Buckley and his team, in keeping the beautiful restored Walled Gardens and grounds of this once majestic estate in that immaculate, breathtaking state that you describe. As you have accurately described, that takes year long hard work, planning. dedication and curation to achieve. Many of our visitors here come for the history and the stories that surround this place, but there is as you've seen, far more to Duckett's Grove in a visual sense than just that. The pleasure of visiting these gardens shouldn't be understated. That deserves a review like you have given here. Thank you so much for your recommendation, important feedback and kind comments. I really hope we'll see you here again soon. Kevin

We did the guided tour yesterday @2pm (Friday, 13th August 2021) with tour guide Kevin. We all loved it from start to finish. Our 7 yr old loved hearing about the big house/castle and all of it's history. Seeing the remains of kitchens/pantry etc etc was fantastic. Not sure about the resident ghosts lol , but they did behave themselves. I saw a few ghosts roaming around/scowling at me/everyone on the guided tour. Such a beautiful place to visit and we will most definitely be back again very soon. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Fascinating tour. Two hours well spent learning all about life in this house.
aug. 2021 • Vänner
Our tour guide Kevin was a historian with a great imagination and detailed knowledge of the history and the architecture of Duckett Grove. He took us into the lives of the family and their servants and brought the day to day running of this enormous house to life once more. Excellent tour and well worth a visit.

Informative Sunday afternoon.
Wonderful informative experience with fun guide . Really enjoyed our tour , thank you .
aug. 2021 • Par
The delivery from our guide yest was such fun ,certainly will be letting people know of this free trip. On our doorstep and at last we ticked this one on our bucket list .
The info that there was money left to The Adelaide Hospital in Dublin warrants further investigation, having trained there over forty years ago .
Great fun afternoon including the wonderful walled gardens

Hi Rosemary, On behalf of Carlow Tourism and Carlow County Council, thanks so much for taking the time to review your recent visit to Duckett's Grove. It was a great pleasure to meet you and to have had the privilege of your company on the guided tour. I was very glad indeed to have the opportunity to show you around and share some of this fascinating history with you. The Adelaide Hospital connection is known. I didn't say she left money to it though. If you remember correctly, I stated she funded a wing during her lifetime. This was prior to WW1. Thank you so much for your recommendation, important feedback and kind comments. I really hope we'll see you here again soon. Kevin

Kevin's tours (2pm & 4 pm) are excellent and highly recommended. He is a very good historian, an excellent guide and the house remains are very enjoyable. The tour is interesting, informative and a great introduction to the Carlow area.
