About Wells House & Gardens

Wells House & Gardens boasts over 400 years of history and was built in the late 1600s by John Warren who owned more than 6,000 acres of land in the area that was purchased on his death by the Doyne family.

The Doyne Family went on to run the Wells Estate for over 260 years and during the 1800s, engaged renowned English architect Daniel Robertson to completely redesign the house and its surrounds as you see it today. Robertson is best known for his work in creating the stunning gardens at Powerscourt House and Johnstown castle and was prolific throughout the Southeast.

In 1965 Gerhard Rosler; a hard working and innovative German industrialist bought the house and lands and moved to Wells House with his family to live. The Wells Estate currently amounts to 450 acres (inc. 100 acres of Woodland) and is owned today by Uli and Sabine Rosler who also run a working farm on the grounds.
