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). "The Irish Times" Magazine (May 2011), 'Country Living' magazine (May 2017) and many others.. It is also included in "The 100 Best Gardens In Ireland" (2011) and several other garden books.

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

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