Gardens

 

The Garden is open to the public under the Royal Horticultural Society of Ireland Gardens for Charity scheme.The garden is kept going by Stephanie Brooks in loving memory of her late husband, Donal Meredith Brooks, who devoted much of his retirement to it’s continuous upkeep and expansion.

In April the woodlands of are full of daffodils, while May brings beautiful bluebells and in August it is the turn of the orange mombretia. Spring brings the camellias, azaleas, rhododendrons and the other flowering shrubs. In summer, the herbaceous border is at its best and in autumn, the variety and colours of hydrangeas are spectacular.

Garden visit is €5 per person (donated to charity). Please ask for list and map in stable office.
