Enniscoe Gardens and Pleasure Grounds were first opened to the public in 1999.They were restored under the Great Gardens of Ireland Programme.
The walled garden dates from the 18th century but has been restored to the late 19th century layout.
The early gardens were laid out by the Jackson family. In 1834 Madelaine Jackson, the heiress, married her cousin Mervyn Pratt. The Pratt family continued developing the gardens and estate up to 1950. Enniscoe is now owned and managed by direct descendants of the Jacksons and Pratts.
Some plants found in the garden during restoration are:
Rheum palmatum "Atrosanguineum".
The central beds are now egded with box and planted with dahlias
