Beautiful gardens, especially this time of year when the myriad hydrangeas were in full bloom, as well as a wonderful eucryphia smothered in blossoms. We were able to take a tour of the house, which has been in this family for 300 years, and is just chock full of history.

For those interested in gardens this one is a must. Located on outskirts of Cappoquin the gardens are privately owned and the very reasonable sum of 5 euro to explore is well worth it. I was there during the heat wave in early July 2018 and couldn't believe how the gardeners managed to keep the planting so fresh. A trail copy is provided so you can follow mown paths and linger at various points with magnificent views over the surrounding countryside. With a mainly acid soil I will have to return to see the collection of azaleas and rhododendrons at a date in May. Well worth a visit as you can also go to the nearby Tourin house and gardens.

Wonderful garden with some very ancient and unusual plantings. The guide brochure provides an excellent description of the different sections of the overall grounds and the signs will guide you. Must see for garden lovers.

We visited the gardens on a particularly rainy day in June and therefore had the luxury of wandering the gardens and grounds all on our own. We ran into the owner who introduced us to some of the special features, including the fine collection of geraniums. Every corner of the garden is extremely well kept. Situated on a hillside offering sweeping views of the valley below, the garden is at once stately and homely - one of the finest gardens in Ireland. The house itself, although not open to the public, is a fine example of late Georgian architecture.

We visited this garden at the beginning of May 2017. The rhodendrons were out and the colours in the garden were amazing! We met the owner and had a lovely chat with him. He was very welcoming. I will definitely return here as I am sure that the colours change with the seasons, so there will be more to see in the Summer and Autumn. A lovely way to spend a couple of hourrs.
