Caher Bridge Garden, Ballyvaughan

(5/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
Situated in the heart of the Burren in the beautiful Caher Valley, this award winning one acre plantsman's garden was begun from scratch in 1999. Using many native plants and creative stonework, it has been specifically designed and created by the owner to sensitively blend into the surrounding landscape. It has been featured in "The Irish Garden" magazine (May 2010) and "The Irish Times" Magazine (May 2011). It is also included in the book - "The 100 Best Gardens In Ireland" (2011)

The garden is comprised of several "rooms" and includes interesting design elements, several water features, and a large collection of unusual plants.

There are noteable collections of Hosta, Crocosmia, Galanthus, Hemerocallis, Narcissus, Ferns, and Helleborus.
