Ballinsheen Garden


Our garden is in a wonderful setting surrounding our Guesthouse in the pretty village of Lisdoonvarna part of the Burren and Cliffs of Moher Geopark. We have tried to create a garden that is compatible with the surroundings in a sustainable way using local flagstone for the low walls surrounding raised beds.It is a contemporary garden with traditional elements filled with an abundance of both well known and rarer plants with pathways and steps leading to hidden and mini garden areas. It is a work in progress. We hope to offer inspiration, ideas and some tranquility spending time with nature.A hidden gem tucked away in unspoiled countryside. Sorry not wheelchair friendly as lots of steps/inclines. Part of the Burren Garden Trail and proud member of the Burren Ecotourism Network.
