Knockreer House & Gardens information

Lonely Planet review

Near the St Mary's Cathedral entrance to the park stands Knockreer House, with gardens featuring a terraced lawn and a summerhouse. The original 1870s structure burned down; the present incarnation dates from 1958. The house isn't open to the public, but its gardens have magnificent views across the lakes to the mountains.

From the St Mary's Cathedral entrance, follow the path immediately to your right uphill for about 500m to reach the gardens.
