Words From Wells

Wells House & Garden

Welcome to Words from Wells! A blog set up to give you a glimpse into Wells and how we started, the people who made it what it is today and the people who are working to make it last for generations to come! This blog is not just about history but about the real lives of people from Ireland and beyond, our heritage, their pets, hobbies, talents and successes and even some of their secrets!

This will be a monthly blog on the last Monday of every month and to get your reminder why not join our monthly newsletter now.

The Familiar Pooch of Wells House

In the middle of the 19th century there was a notable shift in behaviour of people towards companion animals.

Members of the middle classes were now forming attachments to their canine friends and pet keeping was gaining popularity.

The Success of the Humble Turnip

The turnip is synonymous with Irish cuisine. A root vegetable that we often under appreciate.

Here at Wells House and Gardens when we think of the humble turnip we smile and remember the farmers that once devoted their time to growing the best turnips in the country here.

A Tale of Betrayal and Treachery at Wells

Wells House was built in the second half of the 1600s by a man named John Warren. A stern and loyal soldier to Cromwell’s regime, he was granted 6000 acres of land in the Wells area as payment for his dedication to Cromwell at the time.
