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.

Rossmore Forest Park


A special feature of the park is the rhododendron and azalea display, which is at its colourful best in early summer. Many of the original estate trees still remain, notably Scots pine, cedars and a monkey puzzle. The main avenue to the car park displays several large Sierra or giant redwoods while an avenue of yew trees runs a full 460 metres from the walled garden to the mausoleum in the graveyard.
