Woodstock Gardens are located on a hill top overlooking the picturesque village of Inistioge in South Kilkenny with views out to Mount Brandon in the distance and the River Nore winding through the wooded valley below.

The gardens are currently being restored by Kilkenny County Council with the assistance of an ERDF grant through Bord Failte under the Great Gardens of Ireland Restoration Programme. Over 50 acres of formal gardens, arboretum and woodland are to be brought back to their original condition when the gardens were in the ownership of the Tighe Family in the 1800's.

The garden is laid out with a series of walks through formal avenues and gardens and secluded woodland walks. Destroyed by fire in 1922, the ruins of Woodstock House can be seen on the approach road to the gardens.

The garden also includes a terreaced flower garden, a winter garden, a yew walk, a rose garden and a walled garden (all currently under restoration). On your return from the gardens, stop at Mount Sandford Castle for wonderfull viewsof the wooded valley of the River Nore overlooking Inistioge and it's 13 arch bridge.
