Belvedere House and Gardens
Situated on the beautiful north-east shore of Lough Ennell, Belvedere House, Gardens and Park is a magnificent 160-acre Lakeside estate with fully restored Georgian Villa, Victorian Walled Garden and naturalistic intended 18th century parkland complete with curious and quirky Romantic follies – The Jealous Wall, The Octagonal Gazebo and The Gothic Arch. The House itself is a stunning country villa, originally built as a hunting lodge or ‘bolt hole’. It was designed by architect Richard Cassels – one of Ireland’s most prominent Palladian architects – and ranks as one of the most accomplished works by this renowned architect.
Greenway Cycle and Walking Track
The Old Rail Trail begins in the elegant old market town of Mullingar and ends in Athlone, County Westmeath. Between these two cultural hotspots, you will hear nothing but birdsong and the whirr of the spokes on your bike as you lose yourself along the spectacular 43km cycle path. The Old Rail Trail is a converted stretch of the Midlands Great Western Railway carved through rich fertile farmland, the Old Rail Trail Greenway leads visitors through the very heart of Ireland. The route traces the historic Midlands Great Western Railway track, past restored station houses and under pretty stone arched bridges. Linking the mighty River Shannon in Athlone with the Royal Canal in Mullingar, it passes through areas of unique biodiversity and heritage along the way.
