Description

Crannagael House is the family home of John & Jane Nicholson and best known for being one of the principle venues during the annual Armagh Food & Cider Festival. Also hosted Foraging events, Hidden Gems Tour, Lough Neagh Partnership Tours and a unique location for self-catering accommodation.

To celebrate the spectacular sight of the appearance of the apple blossom and rhododendrons we are hosting a tour of the orchards, grounds and a glimpse into our Georgian house on Sunday 12 May 2019 from 11.00 to 13.30/14.00.

This visit includes:-

  • Savouring the sights, sounds and smells of the orchard at Apple Blossom time

  • Tour of the garden and polytunnels, arboretum and stunning views of Co Armagh’s orchard landscape

  • Explanations of the care of an apple orchard throughout the four seasons
