Perhaps the most magical setting a garden could have is to be on an island bathed in the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. This small island of 15 hectares is known to horticulturists all over the world as an island garden of rare beauty.
Its centerpiece is an outstanding Italian style garden designed by Harold Peto, linked by other formal features such as a double sided herbaceous border and surrounded by a wild garden blending into the wider setting of the exceptional sea and mountain scenery around Glengarriff.
Restaurant/Tearooms: Coffee shop and light snacks. Self guiding trails. Toilets, disabled toilet.
