You will find Heywood Gardens tucked away in a corner of Laois near the beautiful village of Ballinakill. At 50 acres, it is a small park.  Once you enter near the monumental gates and take a stroll down the path through the woods, it is full of twists and turns and nooks and crannies.  The image here is one of the gardens, referred to as the Italian garden, commissioned by Colonel Willian Hutchinson Poe in 1906.  The design was a collaboration between Sir Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll.  This garden is just one of the treats as you stroll around the 50 acres.
