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.

Heron Gallery and Garden


This artist’s garden is full of colour and quirky ideas, echoing the creativity and unique work in the gallery. Organic vegetable beds and poly tunnels supply our wholefood café. A large wildlife pond is surrounded by a newly planted orchard of Irish Heritage apples, wildflower meadow and young woodland.
