Gardens Open

It takes a generous person to open their garden to the public for the enjoyment of others. Here lists about 300 gardens open for visiting, some year-round, others by appointment, and be sure to phone ahead.

Bamboo Park


This is a unique setting (13 acres) on one of the most beautiful bays in Ireland. It creates the illusion that it is a lake but in fact it is the ocean. Bamboos, palms, tree ferns etc., what else could you ask for in the southern part of Ireland? It lacks the excessive heat of the Mediterranean but looks like you’re in it.
