About Drishane House

Drishane House. Huge swathes of bluebells and daffodils are seen in the Spring, and there are many specimen trees including Liriodendron (the tulip tree), Ginko and a massive Cupressus macrocarpa. Unusual plants including the rare and delicate Woodwardia fern can be seen near the house.

Much of the garden was lovingly tended by Edith Somerville, of Somerville and Ross, who lived in the beautiful slate fronted, 18th century family house almost her entire life. Romantic and enchanting.
