Huntington Castle Gardens
These gardens were mainly laid out in the 17th century. This includes the French limes on the Avenue, the “parterre” or lawns to the side of the house, the fish ponds on either side of the centre walk through the wilderness and the majority of Yew trees which comprise the Yew Walk. Larger planting have resulted in Huntington possessing a number of great Irish trees, including four varieties of hickory, a cut leaved oak, Siberian crab and buckeye chestnut. A lake at the bottom of the wilderness and the River Derry flows along there providing a pleasure setting for woodland walks.
