Overview

Seaforde Gardens and Tropical Butterfly House are situated in the historic demesne of Seaforde in County Down, Northern Ireland, which has been a family home for almost 400 years.

Experience the beauty of free-flying tropical butterflies close up as you walk through the steamy jungle interior of the butterfly house, or have a go at finding your way to the centre of Ireland's oldest maze or climb the Moghul Tower and survey the walled garden from above or simply relax and enjoy the extraordinary collection of trees and plants within Seaforde's renowned gardens.

Seaforde Gardens also has a new Cafe, The Garden House, which is opening in Easter 2017. The gardens also include a Butterfly House shop and a children's playground.
