Dunmore House, Carrigans

Duration: 60 mins

Dunmore 01

A very remarkable traditional walled garden associated with a 1742 country house. Many wonderful gardens are to be found within one large walled area (2 acres), rich collections of ericaceous plants, early 20th century terraced rose beds and a towering Redwood stands sentinel towards the centre with paths radiating from it.

Imaginative use of plants over arches, traditional fruit and vegetables laid out in terraces with ponds and an interesting collection of sundials. This is very much a practical and productive garden tended with great care and dedication.
