About Kinalea Garden
Beautiful mature garden located within the Bandon River valley. Three lawns with a collection of rare trees and shrubs including a woodland garden. In the front garden there is a colourful collection of ferns, heathers and grasses. In the centre of the rear lawn there is a curved scree Alpine Rockery.
This echoes the shape of the highlight of the garden which is the colourful perennial border with a cottage garden feel. The nearby sunken zen patio offers a collection of tropical plants & trees.
