Ireland has long been the home of many beautiful gardens which, sustained by this island's mild, temperate climate, continue to thrive and entice gardeners in a diversity of ways. Pleasure gardens, historic gardens, wild gardens and botanic gardens: all will be covered, while important arboreta and demesne parks will be given full scope. From the sweeping, formal elegance of Mount Usher to the intimate glades of Birr Castle, we feature a range of distinctive plant-rich gardens, each indentified on a location map.
