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.



Although May and June are usually the best months with the most colour and variety, there is always something in season: snowdrops to the autumn colours and winter-flowering cherry.  The house and garden have existed for several centuries.  There are many rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias, large areas of snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells and beautiful walks through young and mature broadleaf woodland with outstanding views over Lough Swilly and Inishowen. Greenfort was awarded the “Garden of the Year 2019” by the Donegal Garden Trail.
