Rowallane Garden (Ballynahinch)

Rowallane Garden (Ballynahinch)


Rowallane Garden is a National Trust property located immediately south of Saintfield, County Down, Northern Ireland on the A7 road. It is particularly noted for its extensive collection of azaleas and rhododendrons.

Let your imagination lose among the unusual plants, seasonal colour palettes and striking features in one of the most beautiful gardens in Northern Ireland. Carved into the County Down landscape, Rowallane Garden has grown from its 19th-century beginnings at the hands of Reverend John Moore and his nephew Hugh Armytage Moore.

Their vision to create a place where visitors can leave the world behind and immerse themselves in nature lives on and influences the ongoing conservation work in the garden. A mix of formal and informal spaces, filled with unique plants from every corner of the globe, offer breathtaking vistas across the County Down countryside.

The trees, plants and shrubs range in age, size and colour, creating a spectacle throughout the year. Rowallane Garden is ideal for leisurely walks, quick refreshments in the café or simply relaxing in nature.

The estate house is the headquarters of the National Trust in Northern Ireland.
