Mrs Jessie Mahaffy’s Garden
Established in 1972 by Mrs Jessie Mahaffy, a relative of William Robinson and granddaughter of the forester at Lissadell, Co. Sligo, Blackrock is a garden constructed upon rock. A charming rockery sits above the farmhouse. A grassy corridor winds between a shrubbery and one of the garden’s shady borders to a small cottage garden planted with perennials. All of the planting is interspersed with free-seeding aquilegias, foxgloves and yellow Welsh Poppies. Various lilies are also a feature and ferns abound in the wetter shady areas. This delightful cottage garden has a timeless quality about it, slowly evolving over the years and carefully tended and planted with flowers from gardener friends near and far. Children must be supervised please!
