Mount Stewart House and Gardens

Moin Stíobhaird
County Down

The manor house, built in the 18th century, is especially known for its beautifully landscaped gardens and the octagonal “Temple of Winds” – a building modelled on the “Tower of the Winds” in Athens. The gardens of the property benefit from the mild climate at Strangford Lough and sometimes have a Mediterranean feel. Statues of animals or mythical creatures have been placed in several locations, giving the gardens something magical.
