Welcome to Burtown, an artists' garden & Gallery Cafe near Athy in Co. Kildare

Burtown House, an early Georgian villa, is surrounded by lush flower, vegetable and woodland gardens with beautiful park and farmland walks.

“It is rare to find one of these houses still in the possession of the descendants of the family that built it. Burtown is one of these treasures, passed down through the generations and still very much a family home”.
The Knight of Glin and James Peill - The Irish Country House.

The gardens at Burtown are unusual in that they are worked by three generations of the family; Wendy Walsh, one of Ireland's finest botanical artists; Wendy's daughter the painter Lesley Fennell, and her son James, a professional photographer. Both Wendy Walsh & Lesley Fennell have studios in situ that may be visited.
