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.



First Est’d 30yrs ago in an exposed coastal location overlooking Donegal Bay. The garden falls away from the house in a series of hidden terraces with extensive range of plants. Grasses, rich exotic planting. An oasis of botanical beauty. A particular example of how a difficult site can be transformed. Featured in the Jan/ Feb 2018 edition of The Irish Garden magazine.
