Welcome to Beaulieu House & Garden
“A Hidden Gem”
Beaulieu is one of the first unfortified houses built in Ireland.
Situated on the gently sloping banks of the river Boyne, it was designed around an old Plunkett property by Sir Henry Tichbourne between 1660 – 1666, with further ‘improvements’ added in the 1720s. The house is a rare survivor of the Artisan Mannerist style with fine brickwork and carvings and currently lived in by the eleventh generation of the Tichbourne family.
House and garden are open between 1st June and 4th September 2016, and by appointment (for groups of 10 or more), at other times of the year. Information about the house’s history, architecture and decorative interiors are all part of a guided tour, which takes about 40 minutes.
The vibrant, walled garden, with its double herbaceous border and sunny, south facing slope is self-guided and contains many unusual plants and trees. We are members of the Boyne Valley Garden Trail and a route map to other gardens and houses can be downloaded here. Boyne Garden Trail Map 2016
