Welcome to Burtown, an Artists' Garden & our Green Barn Restaurant, Cafe & Shop 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.
Please see our events page for our exciting Autumn calendar of events …..with Gill Meller of River Cottage and his wood fired feast and Finghan Collins Irelands premier pianist playing a beautiful concert ….
