Ashford Castle is famous for its extensive gardens, which were first laid out by the Guinness family in the nineteenth century, and have since been developed to become amongst the finest in Ireland. In 1996, an ornamental pond was built in the Tollman Garden, which is overlooked by the castle’s terrace. It was decided more recently that a fountain would be added, with a pattern of six walkways by which the pond could be approached.
