Ardress House is nestled in the apple orchards of County Armagh and offers afternoons of fun and relaxation for everyone.
Ardress House boasts one of the finest neo-classical drawing rooms, best known for its stunning plasterwork. Beyond the grandeur lays a pleasant surprise in the form of an 18th Century cobbled farmyard.
The farmyard’s proximity to the house itself is unusual and it boasts a comprehensive range of farm buildings such as a Dairy, Smithy, Tool Shed and Threshing Barn, all fully equipped with tools used at the time in the 18th Century. Young visitors will enjoy meeting the cows, chickens, sheep and Shetland ponies
The Lady’s Mile is a circular woodland walk bordering part the 100 acre estate of Ardress House. It was planted by the Ensor family and white oak predominates, ash, beech, lime, horse chestnut, sycamore and Scot’s pine are also present.
The delightful Rose Garden was replanted in 2000 with a mixture of varieties of Irish roses alongside a variety of Floribundas. In the walled garden, within the farmyard, there are planted many varieties of old Irish apple trees.
