Visit West Cork Garden


West Cork is truly the garden paradise of Ireland, bathed as it is in the Gulf Stream which enables luxuriant sub-tropical growth of a kind associated with much lower latitudes. The gardens on the trail are wonderful, diverse, healing and tranquil.

The gardens are growing strength to strength from year to year there is currently 25 gardens in the trail. These gardens range from large gardens as part of a stately home to smaller private gems.

We are delighted to have our garden featured in the West Cork Garden Trail. We provide both history and foraging tours of the gardens upon request.

Visit West Cork Garden Trail for more information.

We can also recommend routes and gardens to visit.



We loved the gardens. We had dinner in the restaurant one evening and it was delicious, a real taste of West Cork. We had a fabulous time. Will return again.


Gorgeous hotel, very comfy beds, staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Beautiful gardens and delicious food. Only a few minutes from the town centre. Will happily stay here again.


The staff were friendly and efficient. There was a lovely atmosphere in the hotel, the gardens are a joy. We really enjoyed our stay will definitely return x


Everything about the place was amazing. My only problem was that my stay was one night. I will be back for a longer stay next time. I would give them a 10/10 rating. Excellent


The hotel's staff were very welcoming. Fabulous location overlooking Clonakilty from the west. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very relaxing. The food was delicious and everything homemade. A great hotel to chill-out in.
