Gardens in Ireland

Ireland is a strongly Celtic country and the ancient Celts are not known to have made gardens. But with its warm and wet climate, Ireland is well suited to gardens and the habit of making them seems to have reached Ireland with the Anglo-Saxon settlers from over the Irish sea. English land-owners owned many estates with great gardens in Ireland and since the country became prosperous, in the late twentieth century, an indigenous Irish garden design tradition has been developing.
