Visit in the Spring when the rhododendrons are blooming and the garden is at its most colourful, with a variety of songbirds to entertain you, peacocks wandering around the formal part of the garden and ducks quacking in the pond. The magnolias, azaleas and camellias are beautiful and there is an air of peace and quiet. Kilmokea is quite off the beaten track but well worth discovering. There is a tea room, I believe, but I can't speak for it as I didn't go there. Quite expensive if you bring a family but not bad for a couple, and better suited to adults than kids at any rate.
