A 2 acre garden on a south facing slope. Malcolm and Phemie Rose started developing the garden in 1989. It has been owned by Ronnie Halligan since 2013. There is a woodland garden, Mediterranean garden and Southern Hemisphere walk.
A 2 acre terraced garden overlooking beautiful Dunmanus Bay planted to take full advantage of the temperate climate of West Cork. There are many 'rooms' in the garden transporting the visitor from the cool woodland garden to the hot Mediterranean Garden with perhaps a stroll through the fernery, the southern hemisphere walk and the fernery en route.
The garden was started from a very unpromising rocky site on the side of a hill in 1989.
There are collections of Sorbus, Tree Ferns, Terrestial Ferns, Restios, Palms, Cordylines, Acers and Southern Hemisphere Plants.
