Woodstock Gardens are located in the south east of Kilkenny just outside the picturesque village of Inistioge. The gardens, overlooking the River Nore Valley, offer the visitor a wide variety of attractions and are a most relaxing and beautiful environment in which to spend a day.

Join Teagasc Forestry Advisor Frances McHugh for an interesting walk through the forest. Find out about the wonders of the woodlands and benefits of forestry to our lives.
