Ancient oak at Emo Court

Emo Court contains some of the oldest trees in Ireland

The magnificent neo-classical house was designed for the Earls of Portarlington. The enormous gardens, woodlands and lake were laid out in the 18th century.

A private residence until 1994, this property is now managed by Heritage Ireland. The house, still furnished, can be seen by appointment. There is a tea room on site.
