Bellefield House & Gardens
Birr, Co. Offaly
Discover the splendid gardens of Bellefield House in County Offaly. Owned by garden designer Angela Jupe, Bellefield has featured on several television programmes and in a number of publications.

Explore the stunning walled gardens and pretty woodland areas. Marvel at the amazing collection of plants, flowers and shrubs with Bellefield showcasing one of the largest snowdrop collections in Ireland. Spot daffodils, hellebores, peonies, roses and tulips and, in autumn, Angela grows an impressive selection of fruit and vegetables.

Check out the picturesque holiday cottages converted from the old farm and gate lodge. These bright and spacious cottages each have their own garden and access to the main gardens. They sleep two to four people, enjoy a family break or plan a few days away with friends.

Wander around the Victorian glasshouse, designed by Angela and made from salvaged materials. See the Eastern style fern folly and don't miss the dramatic water feature in the garden.
