Salthill Garden

Salthill House, Mountcharles, Co. Donegal, F94 H524

Duration: 100 mins

Salthill is well illustrated in “The Irish Garden” (2015) by Jane Powers with photographs by Jonathon Hession.  She aptly describes the space “The 0.5 hectare enclosure has that delightful feeling of privacy and mystery that is particular to old walled gardens”.   So, come and witness the “great gatherings of herbaceous plants amid mature shrubs and noteworthy trees”.
