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.
