About this event

THIS VISIT IS FOR IGPS MEMBERS ONLY.

Members must have paid their 2021/22 membership fee before booking tickets

The Mansion House in Ballywalter Park was built in the Italianate Palazzo style by the eminent architect Sir Charles Lanyon and has been afforded Grade A * listing as being of exceptional architectural importance.

The house is surrounded by 30 acres of pleasure grounds and is situated within the walled demesne of some 270 acres. The total Estate runs to over 1200 acres and is home to one of Northern Ireland’s largest dairy herds and it also includes significant acreages of arable crops and mixed woodland.

The Walled Garden has been described by Lady Dunleath as her personal paradise. The gardening team has worked hard in recent years to restore the Walled Garden to its former glory.

ITINERARY Numbers are strictly limited to a maximum of 60 members in total.

The visit will consist of a tour of the house plus a tour of the garden. Refreshments will be provided and are included in the ticket price.

On arrival, members will be split into two groups. The first group will visit the house (complying with regulations) while the second group visits the garden. Each of these tours will last approximately one hour. Following this the first group will visit the garden while the second group visits the house (complying with regulations). Again each tour will last approximately one hour.

Directions to Ballywalter Park: These will be issued prior to the event to those to have booked tickets.
