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.

Blarney Castle Gardens


Blarney Castle is primarily famous for ‘the Blarney Stone’ but equally worth exploring are the beautiful grounds around the Castle and Blarney House. This includes acres of parkland, gardens, avenues, arboretums and waterways. A great family day out!
