Mountbellew Walled Garden & Amenities Project

Involves the development of the Walled Garden and adjoining woodlands in a way that will benefit the local community and promote heritage and activity-based tourism in this area.

The long term aim is to rejuvenate, conserve and develop the 18th century walled garden in Mountbellew, Co Galway. Developing this existing heritage resource will provide a new amenity for the area. It will also compliment other local heritage and recreation assets helping attract visitors to the area thus stimulating rural tourism.
