Burtown is currently home to 4 generations of the Fennell family. With 2 artists studios, a permanent Wendy Walsh exhibition, a shop featuring family paintings & prints, photographs, jewellery and many of the 30 books that have been produced by James Fennell and Wendy Walsh, as well as art and sculpture by local designers and artists, Burtown Gardens has much to offer. Burtown Gardens are open to visitors for much of the year - and the house and gardens by appointment.

Artist Studios

Visitors to Burtown House may visit two artists' studios; Wendy Walsh, Ireland’s foremost botanical artist, has produced 15 books on Ireland’s flora and fauna, and her daughter Lesley Fennell is a still life and portrait painter who takes much of her inspiration from the gardens she has developed and created over the last 40 years. Her son, James Fennell, who has produced over 16 books on Ireland’s architectural heritage, art and people, also has a photography studio within the gardens.

As well as being a mother of 3 and a talented cook, James' wife, Joanna (photographed opposite), is also a jewellery designer and her handmade jewellery is available to buy at the shop.

There is a permanent exhibition dedicated to the life of Wendy Walsh with many paintings.

Burtown House and Gardens is now easier than ever to get to. Just over one mile from the M9, it sits just below Mullaghmast Hill and Rath once part of the original estate, 45 minutes from Dublin, 25 minutes from Kilkenny, 50 minutes from Waterford, it is in easy reach from all directions. The historic Quaker Village of Ballytore is close by as is the historic trading town of Athy. There is much to see and do within our locality. We look forward to welcoming you.
