Springhill has a beguiling spirit that captures the heart of every visitor with its great charm and enthralling past. This National Trust property is a pretty 17th-century 'Plantation' home with a significant costume collection with walled gardens and parkland full of tempting waymarked paths, not forgetting Ireland's best-documented ghost: Olivia.
A 2 mile circular, Beech walk take you through the parkland of the Springhill Estate, visiting the gardens, Springhill House, estate and Demesne. There is also an aviary in adjacent field where herons have nested. Described as ‘one of the prettiest houses in Ulster, the estate also has a second-hand bookshop, children’s adventure trail play park and natural play park. There is a tower on an elevated site above the Beech walk dating from the early 18th century.
