Tyrellstown House


Tyrrelstown House is situated on ten hectacres of parkland & dates back to the 17th century. It has been home to the Wilkinson family since the late 1800s. Mark has inherited his father Keith’s passion for trees, and has continued to develop a small arboretum on the parkland, which incorporates woodland walks, spring bulbs and wild flower meadows, from which they produce their own honey. Olive (following in Mark’s mother Eleanor’s footsteps) tends to the herbaceous borders in the walled garden, which leads into a second walled garden of vegetables and fruit trees. There is also a separate rose garden to the west of the house.
