About Ballycommane House & Garden
Ballycommane House & Garden has many plants from all over the world to be discovered in the garden, including subtropical species like tea trees, tree ferns and myrtles thriving in the mild climate. Specialist collections include rare plants from the southern hemisphere (Gondwana flora) and the Azores.
Secluded garden rooms, a pond and a greenhouse provide ever-changing vistas while following the paths meandering through lush greenery. We invite you to explore at your leasure, or to just sit down and relax. At the highest point in the garden, there is an ancient monument guarded by towering Monterey pines. It comprises the Ballycommane boulder-burial site and a pair of standing stones. From this magical place, there is a panoramic view over the surrounding landscape.
