Drishane House and Gardens

About Drishane House

Magical paths thread through 18 acres from the formal to woodland with spectacular West Cork Atlantic views. There are huge swathes of bluebells and many specimen trees including the Ginko, a massive Cupressus macrocarpa, Magnolias and Cornuses. Unusual plants including the rare and delicate Woodwardia fern can be seen near the house. Much of the garden was lovingly tented 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.
