It takes about 90 minutes to explore the garden at a leisurely pace, longer for the enthusiast, so please plan your visit accordingly.
Come ready to be outdoors. Wear walking shoes. The terrain can be rough, paths are not paved, and the garden is large. Plan accordingly for sun exposure and insects.
Innisfree is located just 4 miles east of the Taconic State Parkway in Millbrook, New York. Bicycles in the garden are forbidden, but cyclists are welcome to leave their bikes in the parking lot during their visit.
From the north or south on the Taconic, take the US44/Poughkeepsie/Millbrook Exit. Do not take the Tyrrel Road Exit as a portion of the route is impassible.
Turn east on to Route 44 toward Millbrook.
Continue 1.7 miles east from the Taconic Parkway to Tyrrel Road (on the right). Watch for the blue Innisfree Garden sign.
Turn right on Tyrrel Road and proceed 1 mile. The garden entrance is on the left.
Turn left on Tyrrel Road approximately 1,200 feet past the intersection of Routes 82, 44, 44A/Sharon Turnpike, and just past the Dutchess County Farm and Home Center on the right. Watch for the blue Innisfree Garden sign.
Turn left on Tyrrel Road and proceed 1 mile. The garden entrance is on the left.
Innisfree Garden is about 15 miles from the Poughkeepsie Train Station, which is served by both Amtrak and MetroNorth trains. Poughkeepsie is over 90 minutes from New York City (Penn Station — Amtrak and Grand Central — MetroNorth), and 60 minutes from the Albany/Rensselaer Station (Amtrak). Taxi cabs are available at the Poughkeepsie station, but you must schedule your return trip as cell phone service in the garden is unreliable, and there is no public telephone.
Guests are welcome to bring their own food and non-alcoholic drinks to our open-air picnic area. The picnic area is located between visitor check-in, the parking area, and the lake. Some tables overlook the lake. While there is no food service at Innisfree, there are many restaurants and markets nearby. Picnicking is not allowed elsewhere in the garden.
The only restrooms on site are in the parking area.
The shortest path around the lake is about 1.3 miles long. Visitors have the ability to wander and explore, so often cover greater distances.
The terrain at Innisfree varies, but is often steep and/or uneven. There are some steps and stairs. There are no paved paths, and walking surfaces include gravel, lawn, pine needles, and packed earth. There are chairs and benches throughout the garden.
Accessibility depends on an individual’s particular situation, but the varied terrain and surfaces make wheelchair or stroller access difficult.
