Tannaghmore Gardens

15 miles outside Armagh City is Tannaghmore Gardens, which is set against a Georgian farmhouse which in turn is steeped in Armagh history. The park is located alongside Craigavon Lakes, which include a children’s play park and ‘Master McGrath’ maze among many walks & trails.
It’s main and most popular attraction are the many animals which are easily accessible to children and adults alike who can get up close to the many rare breeds which call Tannaghmore their home.
The rare animals include Dexter and Irish Moiled cattle, Galway and Jacob sheep, several breeds of pig and various breeds of poultry, rabbits, pigmy goats and horses.
Handy tip: bringing some food to feed the animals – bread and old fruit and vegetables are recommended to make the most of your day out. The recent upgrade to the park has seen new toilets and hand washing facilities added to the park.
The adjoining Barn Museum offers visitors a captivating look back on farm life in Co Armagh in bygone days and a guided tour is recommended to take advantage of all the museum and park has to offer.
Tours are mainly for groups and schools and can be tailored to fit key stages in Science and geography and are sometimes arranged to coincide with hatching of chicks within the park.
And for the romantic in you, Tannaghmore is the home of the ‘Kissing Gate’. The fable is that couples who kiss over the gate will get married within a year and it is not unknown for couples who have had their wish fulfilled to return to pose for wedding photographs.
