The gardens at Burtown come to life in late January and early February with large swathes of naturalised snowdrops sweeping down the front avenue underneath the old horse chestnut and beech trees, in the old island woodland garden, and naturally throughout the flower gardens. There is also a more recent planting of a specialised snowdrop bed. In addition there are many collections of hellebores, early spring bulbs and perhaps one of the largest carpets of aconites which form a canopy under the old horse chestnut trees at the front of the house and are slowly naturalising down the front avenue. This is perhaps one of the largest gatherings of aconites in Ireland and the UK.
The gardens are open Wednesday - Sunday from 09:00 - 16:00
