Portumna Castle & Gardens
Portumna Castle & Gardens, first formal garden, is now filled with colour and perfume.
These 17th Century variety of roses bloom only once a year between mid June and the end of July so now is the time to enjoy the full experience. While in the gardens be sure to visit the lovely walled kitchen garden.
