The gardens are beautiful, definitly a site to be seen. Walk it through its entirety and then head back to the front and take the trolley tour (5-10 mins). Staff is incredibly nice and polite. We were lucky enough to be invited unto the church.

Airlie gardens has the most beautiful Oak trees I have ever seen. Christmas in Airlie is spectacular in how they showcase the trees and create a winter wonderland.

This is worth the drive from Topsail! My husband and I were looking for an excursion for our three young children while vacationing in Topsail. Airlie Gardens did not disappoint! We arrived around 10:30 on a Thursday morning and toured the gardens for 90 minutes....More

Gorgeous gardens and wonderful walks. We visited for a summer concert with family and also took a stroll around the Lake Loop. Some wonderful views of the gardens and lakes and information dotted around for reading.
