Heritage Week runs from 13th – 20th August. We invite you to join us at Rothe House & Garden for a free Garden Tour with Head Gardener Mary Pyke. Learn about the painstaking excavation of the former work yard and the treasures that were unearthed during the process. Carefully restored in a style similar to what the Rothe family themselves would have enjoyed, the gardens are now an oasis of calm in the busy city centre, They complete the property to show how it would have originally looked and make it one of the only complete restored burgage plots in Ireland. Now, we grow heritage varieties of vegetables, plants, herbs and fruits, similar to what would have been grown at the time.
Mary will talk to you about the various household and medicinal uses of the herbs and plants and how the garden at the time signalled to the vast wealth of the Rothes. All are welcome for this fascinating insight into a truly unique restoration project.
No pre-booking necessary, join us come rain or shine!
