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.

We went in early Spring. It was beautiful. We even saw a Momma fox with her cubs playing. There is a old church that is still in use. It's a great way to spend the day and see nature at it's best. The landscape is...More

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

I took photos during their "enchanted Airlie" when we toured their Festival of Lights. Not sure if it's allowed during the day. I don't see why not. You can't take professional photos out there.
