Newtownbarry House, Gallery & Garden

This Victorian Classical house was designed by well known Belfast Architect Sir Charles Lanyon and Partners between 1863-69. The House is situated by the River Slaney and is surrounded by lawns, ancient trees and a Sunken garden, which was restored in 2004 to coincide with the opening of the house and gardens to the public. Since then historical tours of the house have been offered showing the unique Lanyon features. The Sunken garden is approx 2 acres and is a colourful walled garden which includes a formal oval pool, a fountain and a series of borders filled with shrubs and herbaceous perennials, enclosed by lines of dwarf hedges. Mature trees, a rose garden and a lake complete the picture.
