Garden Gate - Loughcrew Gardens During the off season, the key to Cairn T is available at Loughcrew Gardens.

The Naper family have been creating Loughcrew Gardens since 1660, the result is a garden comprising water, trees, vistas and archaeology rather than flowerbeds. The surviving 17th century features include a yew walk, foundations of a longhouse and a walled garden from which a canal and a parterre have been relocated in replica.

In the 19th century these earlier elements were enveloped in a development of parkland, watergardens, specimen trees, follies, rockeries, woodwalks and vistas. The central area of approximately six acres now includes a lime avenue, lawns and terraces and herbaceous border.
