Ballindoolin House: 130 acres of parkland and 120 acres of fine broad-leafed woodland. The museum is housed in a restored 19th Century farm building which has on display old account books and letters, butter churners, a poacher trap, a glass water filter, antique kitchen paraphernalia and Victorian collection of bird's eggs. The walled garden was created with the house in 1822, in the garden is a melon pit which is a rectangular hot aired flued pit and was used for forcing and raising seeds. Near the gardens on a small hill, stands the ruins of a dove cote of a most unusual trefoil design. Near the Pigeon House is a well preserved lime kiln built into the face of a stone outcrop.
