despite it being the end of season in terms of seeing it in its true splendor a month earlier before first frost would have been the business as the majority of the colour was frodt damaged dahlias etc roses struggling and all the fruit picked you could still see the range of plants and the level of worked to be done to keep iot up to the level it is at with only one permament gardener and a lot of voluntary help. the new tunnell should help to add to the range of plants on sale and a splash of annual colour and extend the ranger of plants adequate shop and cafe and a nice woodland walk for the more energetic
Relaxing, enjoyable afternoon in the garden
46 of us spent almost 3 hours here- the garden is beautiful, incredibly cared for by margherita,Marie,Dorothy and the rest of the team. Great tea and cakes too!
Marie gives an incredible tour of the garden, her love for the garden, the plants and wildlife shines through. This is a garden not to be missed
What a Gem
Even though the garden is in rural Ireland, it is not difficult to find. Use google maps. The journey is well worth it- the owner gave us a history of the garden and of her ownership of the farm and garden. She then pointed out fascinating features of this absolutely beautiful garden- from the dovecote, to the magnificent plantings, and the intricate garden design. She left us alone to wander and soak in the beauty!! A special highlight of our trip.
Wonderful Spring visit
The Woodville Walled Garden is always worth a visit at any season especially in spring when their huge tulips collection flowers. Very friendly helpful gives excellent info and serves a nice cup of tea.
Not to be missed
Lovely Garden, with such a passionate head gardener. We felt very welcomed, & everything was explained to us. The walled garden has such variety & colour - so pleased we made the stop We would certainly recommend a visit.
Oh, What a wonderful garden!
I visited today in glorious sunshine, and had a tour of the garden with Marie, the head gardener. This garden is beautifully planted with an enviable collection of rare and unusual plants, and also produces fruit and vegetables for the house. There is a woodland walk which I didn’t have time for today, so allow a half day to really make the most of your visit. Follow the directions carefully, it really is not to be missed!
Well Worth A Visit
What a beautiful find, worth a stop off and taking sometime to stay for awhile. Enjoy the well cared for gardens which is a lovely treat for the senses; beautiful colours for your eyes to see; smell of the roses delight for your nose and the sounds of bees happily buzzing away and bird song for nature’s sounds to spoil your ears.
Make time to take in the magical woodland walk, it has some lovely treats along its adventure to bring a smile and chuckle for the big kid in you and wonder to children.
I took in the garden and woodland walk with a treat on returning to the stables were my trip began with added bonus of beautiful sunshine and some friendly feline company as I enjoyed tea and treats on the lawn.
Marie was lovely lady to meet on arrival, warm welcome, info on garden and woodland walk followed by putting kettle on for nice brew on return from lovely afternoon stroll.
Great Place not to busy
Great place to take photos, staff very helpful and friendly great atmosphere loved are visit, hidden gem not to busy
An hidden part of ireland ???????? worth a trip off the beaten track
My husband and I called into to see this garden, it is lovely ???? with plenty to see particularly when we were there the dahlias are in flower. Marie the head gardener there has a passion for them. Marie has a real love for her garden and it is definitely worth getting her to give you a tour. She takes many students in to help from the local college.
We missed out on the tea and cakes as students had been there before us and eaten them all????.
I also loved the restored dove cote in the walled garden. This is not a high garden though it is beautiful and a lot of time and effort has been put into it.
Go and see it on your way through to Galway.
