Derreen Garden, Kenmare

Derreen Garden, Kenmare

Derreen Garden in Kenmare was planted 120 years ago. Set on the spectacular Beara Peninsula just 24 km outside of Kenmare,it boasts unrivalled views of Kilmakilloge Bay and the Caha Mountains. The growth of exotic plants from many parts of the world caused by the high rainfall of Kerry gives one the impression of walking through a tropical jungle. The tree ferns from Australia grow side by side with clumps of huge bamboos which contrast with the towering conifers and the many brilliant coloured rhododendrons.

Muckross House & Gardens

Muckross House & Gardens , Killarney, Co Kerry

Situated in Killarney National Park, Muckross House and Gardens are among the most popular of Irish visitor attractions. Queen Victoria paid a visit here, to the Herbert family, in 1861. The House was later owned, in turn, by Lord Ardilaun (of the Guinness family) and by the Bourn Vincents. Muckross Traditional Farms are also open to the public. Between the months of April and July, Muckross Gardens are spectacularly adorned with the red and pink flowers of mature Rhododendrons. Other garden features include a Sunken Garden, a Rock Garden and a Stream Garden. An Arboretum, containing many trees from the Southern Hemisphere, was established here in 1972.
