The 17th Century house and gardens, set on the north bank of the River Boyne, is partly open to the public. The walled garden is believed to have been designed by Dutch artist Willem Van Der Hagen, who settled in Ireland in the 1720s, and is one of the earliest examples of a walled garden in Ireland. There is also a museum on site which displays a collection of classic racing cars and memorabilia.
