The Second Most Underrated Tourist Attraction in the World!

In a world where travel often revolves around ticking off the most famous landmarks and popular destinations from our bucket lists, there lies a collection of hidden gems waiting to be discovered. It is with great honour and excitement that we share the news of being rated the second most underrated attraction in the world, according to research done by Wingie. Wingie undertook an analysis of TripAdvisor reviews from the top 50 tourism experiences in each country, and put together the list based on the number of keywords that indicated the experience was perceived as underrated, relative to total number of reviews. This recognition not only celebrates our uniqueness but also shines a light on the countless overlooked wonders scattered across the globe. Other named attractions on the list included Calbot Trail, Canada, AlNoor Island, United Arab Emirates and Stetson Mansion, Florida.

As we reflect on this achievement, we are reminded of the journey that brought us here. Nestled away in Tully, Kildare, just 40 minutes outside of Dublin with its bustling crowds and tourist hotspots, our attraction has quietly captivated the hearts of those who seek a unique, one-of-a-kind experience. Whether it’s our serene natural landscapes, rich cultural heritage, or captivating history passed down through generations since 1906, there is something truly special about the experience we offer.

What sets us apart is not just our physical beauty but the sense of authenticity and intimacy that envelops every visitor. Unlike the overcrowded landmarks that often leave tourists feeling like spectators, here, you become a part of something greater—a narrative constructed with enthusiasm for sharing our story and history, and the warmth of our local staff.

It’s no secret that being labelled as “underrated” comes with its challenges. Yet, it is precisely this label that fuels our determination to showcase the brilliance of this hidden gem.

To those who have yet to discover us, we extend an invitation to come along on a journey of discovery into the world of thoroughbred horse breeding and to experience the wonder of our Japanese Gardens and St. Fiachra’s Gardens. Whether you love exploring new places or just need a break from the usual, we guarantee an unforgettable experience that will stay with you even after you’ve gone. As we look to the future, we embrace our status as a hidden gem and remain committed to preserving our essence while welcoming travelersfrom every corner of the globe.
