  • We really enjoyed our trip to the Bamboo Park as despite a drizzly day with some showers we could shelter under the bamboo & trees. There are lots of paths for children to explore. You can walk along ...  more »
  • Beautiful gardens setting that frames some stunning coastal views. It feels smaller than the 11 acres quoted. The kids really enjoyed running around exploring. Some nice sheltered areas too so I would...  more »
  • Excellent memory for this very nice Park located close to Glengariff. The place is quiet and very well maintained. The owner is nice and very welcoming. People come especially for the framework and probably less for the bamboo. Indeed, I find the explanations on the species too limited. They are available on the small booklet given at the start of visit (and not at the foot of each species). For my taste the Park would be more didactic on the different species... except for this detail, the place is perfectly maintained, the view on the sea and on the great island of Garinich is beautiful. We had a very nice time and our kids loved!

  • In 2001, a couple bought a bramble covered hillside sloping down to the sea. They levelled it and planted with rhododendrons, tree ferns, palm trees and 100s of species of bamboo. The result is a magical maze of a subtropical wood with mossy paths and amazing views of the bay. Good shoes useful. There are toilets and a tearoom.
  • Great place, not so good on a wet day with young children (Defo bring boots)
  • A magical place. It like a place from Game of Thrones, like Dorn, etc. Very cool.
  • amazing place, tropical forest on irish coast. if the weather is good you may some chill out :)
  • A great place for walk and sight seeing
