GLA continue to provide a wide range of landscape design, planning, project management and consultancy for the ongoing redevelopment and conservation of Westport House Estate & Hotel Westport.

The various landscape developments are situated within the environs of one of Ireland’s premier 18th century historic estates and tourist attraction. Numerous landscape proposals include the restoration of the Italianate gardens surrounding the curtilage of Westport House, the development of an estate wide landscape masterplan, the creation of new woodland and activity trails, the development of an outdoor adventure park, among various other exciting projects.  GLA have designed and specified the proposed landscape to be respectful to the natural and historic fabric of the surrounding demesne, while also using contemporary designs to enhance the visitor experience.
