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.



Kilmokea Country Manor & Gardens is situated on Great Island near Campile, New Ross. There is a depth of richness in the unspoilt nature of these gardens where the wall garden is a place of peace and reflection with rose gardens, pools and herbaceous planting. Love seats are placed around every corner waiting to provide comfort for moments of contemplation. The potager designed as a box maize grows fruit and vegetables for the big house where B&B guests enjoy Organic pleasures. Spring water cascades in series of waterfalls through the woodland garden flowing past Camellias, Rhododendrons, Candelabra Primulas & Tree Ferns. Wooden Sculptures & a small Viking Settlement & Norman Motte nestle in the woodland garden together with the fairy village in the trees.
