This award winning garden has been 24 years in the making by Sheena Wood and Kurt Lyndorff.
Visitors enter the garden by one of several bridges across the river and begin a voyage of discovery in the wonderful blend of art and nature in four interlinked gardens on a one kilometre walk, which includes a science trail and a poetry trail.
Falling Water Garden, Timeless Glen, Environmental Forest and high up the hillside Valley of Eden are open every day from June 1st to September 1st from 10 to 6. Please call if travelling far or for booking groups. Last entry about 4.30.
Entrance fee: adults 7.50 Euro, children 6 Euro, 2 adults and 2 kids 25 Euro. Cyclists & walkers 6.50 Euro. Sensible shoes are recommended. Sorry no dogs except guide dogs.
Tea and coffee to go. Regretfully picnic facilities are no longer provided, but great picnic tables are available in Glengarriff Nature Reserve just down the road. Glengarriff also has great cafes & restaurants.
Allow a minimum of about one hour for a visit, but you can spend longer taking in all the information and the games. In August max two hours allocated for visitors due to limited parking.
'I arrived thinking it was for children. I left knowing it was for all ages. Along the way I grew up & became a child again'
as yet another happy visitor wrote in the visitor book.
