A beautiful 3 acre garden with amazing designs and fun for all the family in West Cork, including a Hobbit House and Fairies Trail. This 3 acre garden is full of surprises with each garden style flowing into the next. The front garden contains a sunken white garden, an Italianate canal and a Japanese garden. The boundary wisteria walk opens out into the bog garden and woodland area, from where you can continue to the tea house to enjoy a view of the Mediterranean and tropical gardens. Wander over the birch mound, which is surrounded by the wildflower meadow, into the walled kitchen garden to view the seasonal vegetables. The kids will have great fun visiting the Hobbit House built right through the birch mound or searching for the fairy houses in the Fairies woods. View the Budgies, Parakeets, Finches, Ducks and Chickens in the Aviary. CLOSED TUESDAYS

We visited the gardens recently and while the kids found it extremely good, I found the price for adults really didn't justify the €5 entry fee. I think the kids price at €3 is worth it. Don't get me wrong it was good and we...More

I have no connection to the garden, I only visited it in the Summer but I know there is no public transport to it. It's slightly off the beaten track but hire cars are readily available
