Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Neglected post-WW2 for 50 years, the gardens have been fully restored and are fabulous. Walking through, you are suddenly met with a huge sunken garden with paths around the top & bottom so you can see it to advantage. Great for photos too. There is a cafeteria and rambling art gallery in the house but the gardens are the star of the show. Part of the annual Carlow Garden Festival, just near Bunclody town.

Tucked away in a lowly quiet bend edging on to Bunclody town in Co. Wexford is Newtownbarry House and Gardens. Easily missed!.. but once found offers the visitor a very gratifying experience of 'a gardener's paradise' on a quaint scale. If you are visiting Co. Wexford, passing through Bunclody town, don't miss an opportunity to have coffee, cake at the house cafe, browse the crafts on sale, wander the floors of art exhibitions, and finally sit silent in 'the sunken garden' where your eyes and senses will be challenged at the incredible array of floral species carefully planted in a most wonderful display.

These garden are situated in the village of Bunclody, Itself rather fascinating. We did not tour the house just had tea and scones the toured the gardens. Very colourful in June but the attraction needs a lot more visitors to pay for the upkeep, well done gardener for your efforts. The gardens need a greater attractions to have a fuller impact, maybe some wood sculptures, A wonderful job done restoring the gardens.
A warning though the drive into the house has "sleeping policemen" that aren't painted and are also too high, even though I drove slowly over them I was concerned they'd damaged my car. A little annoying.
If your in the Enniscorthy area well worth a visit. Stop in the village and have a tour.

First attempt to visit & it was closed but second time lucky. Unassuming entrance, cosy shop & cafe but we took to the gardens straightaway & weren't disappointed. An unexpected layout lay ahead in the form of a sunken garden section. Interesting planting too. So small but perfectly formed.

The house ang gardens were open for visitors As it was heritage week the house tour was free The gardens were pleasent but not very large and plants and shrubs were only ok There was a exhabition in the gallery this was very nice this changes frequently
Thy serve light lunches and lovely homemade cakes in the tea room and if the weater is fine one can sit outside in the courtyard The craft shop is very small with very little stock

When you stop outside the entrance to this fine house you could be forgiven for getting into your car and driving away ! you enter into a sparse hallway that hides the hidden charm and beauty of this building and its gardens too well ! It costs €4 euro for the house tour and the same for the gardens... I picked the gardens and my family went on the house tour... we were both delighted with our trip !!!

We visited this place a couple of weeks ago and unfortunately the house is only open at the weekends, so we didn't get to go inside. However, we had a lovely lunch at the cafe of smoked salmon salad and soda bread. There were some nice craft items for sale and we had a good walk through the gardens, which include a sunken garden and a rose garden. There are lovely views of the sunken garden from a path above and it can be entered through a short tunnel. It is beautifully set out and maintained. A lovely way to spend a morning or afternoon.
