Remarkable 18th-century house and 98-acre garden that reflect the rich history of the Stewart family who played a leading role in British social and political life.

We live close to Mount Stewart. Its one of the places we love to take the kids for a walk, either around the wonderful gardens or over to see the ducks etc. The new paths around the whole estate are exciting can't wait to explore.

Cafe was expensive however service from lady there was exceptional. Very pleasant, friendly, polite and nothing...More

Interesting to view the recently renovated house. Just be aware that only a relatively small number of rooms are actually open to the public, and touring the house itself will not take that long. The gardens are quite another matter. You could easily spend several...More

This is a hidden gem on the Ards Peninsula. For many years my family drove past the gates and wondered what the house looked like, now we can see it anytime. The house has just had a major revamp worth £8m and you can see...More

We visited the gardens pre 2009 before the National Trust spent £8 million renovating the house. You can spend hours in the house alone and I think the system of guides in each room works very well especially if you ask them questions and this...More
