We are the Champions!
Woodstock is well known for its collection of trees from all over the world and is home to many ‘champions’. Come and see one of ¬†the longest Monkey Puzzle Avenues in Europe,¬†our ‘Champion¬†Coast redwood, the tallest Silver Fir in Ireland and our very rare and important Bentham Cypress.
One of the most outstanding features at Woodstock ¬†is the Monkey Puzzle Walk (Araucaria araucana) which is set out on an almost north/south axis to the south of the house. Also at Woodstock is the Noble Fir Walk (Abies procera).¬† The walk which is over 1/4 of a mile in length is a very fine and important surviving feature from¬† this 19th Century garden.¬†¬†¬†It was the last great work to the ornamental planting in the grounds made by William F. Tighe, planted during the year of his death in 1878.
