The garden was inspired by travels of the 2nd Earl. It is laid out in the Italian style over seven terraces, with the house sitting on the third terrace. A Parterre facing south surrounding a wisteria circle which again surrounds a fountain was also created. From there rise the famous Hundred Steps, a monumental staircase built of local stone, set amidst azaleas and rhododendron.
Bantry House was recently featured on Country House Rescue the Channel 4 production where it received very favourable reviews and has prompted many to revisit the House and Garden as well as first time visitors.
