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.



A remarkable sprawling garden as quoted by Jane Powers, a leading news correspondent for the Irish Times. It is enviably situated on a gentle south facing slope, enclosed by woodlands with a view overlooking Cork Harbour and the Lee Estuary. Sprawling over two acres combing centuries of old age trees, Pine, Beech and Larch with an under story of hazel and holly, and a haze of blue bells in the Spring. Panted with Rhododendrons and Azaleas
