Salthill Garden


Salthill is well illustrated in ‘The Irish Garden’ (2015) by Jane Powers. Described as “The .5 hectare enclosure has the delightful feeling of privacy and mystery that is particular to old walled gardens”. So, come and witness the “great gatherings of herbaceous plants amid mature shrubs and noteworthy trees”.
