Mount Stewart House and Gardens (Down)

  • Information

    Mount Stewart House and Gardens is an 18th Century mansion house owned by the Londonderry family and situated just a little way from Greyabbey.

    The estate is 98 acres and the house itself is well worth a visit as it houses one of the most exclusive collections of art collected from all over the globe complemented by incredible gardens that include superb examples of a sunken garden and Italian style gardens as well as a terrace full of fantastical concrete animals and a Temple of Winds!

    Mount Stewart is one of the most inspiring and unusual gardens in the National Trust’s ownership. Lady Londonderry is said to have been the driving force in establishing these international renown gardens and famous for experimentation with plants. This opulent home has a fantastic heritage and you’ll marvel at the artefacts and art housed here.

    It’s usually open from 10am – 4pm daily but check on their website too as times may vary in Winter.
