Knockpatrick Gardens, a Garden in Limerick – Visitors Comments

A Joy at every turn

Wish we had more time. We will be back soon

Michael White, Mount Congreve Garden

Most certainly one of the most beautiful gardens we have ever seen, well done.

Ros and Ian Bodworth, Hamgate, Yorkshire

Relaxing, Good for the soul.

Lovely garden, I loved the beautiful views and the moongate.

Garden Paradise.

A heart felt welcome that both myself and my wife rarely experienced. We were made so much at home by the owners. An experience that we will treasure forever.

If it is inspiration and solace you are looking for you will find it in this paradise of fusion gardens, a paradise that all of us at some stage in our lives seek but very few of us ever find.

Well worth a visit

This is a lovely garden to visit. We were the only visitors when we went, but we were so well looked after by the owner.

Some lovely plants to look at in a lovely, beautifully set out garden. The views over the Shannon estuary were stunning.

Wild Atlantic Way garden in Foynes

The primula path is full of colour from the candelabra primulas, hostas, echiums, bamboos, skunk cabbage and more.

Every year we try and take on a new project. This water feature of two children holding an umbrealla in the rain surrounded by pink roses was one such project.

open garden in Limerick We love to see our visitors taking time out from their busy lives to just sit and enjoy the beauty of nature.
Last year we experimented with creating a wild flower garden. We cleared a disused area of the garden and planted some wild flower seeds. The result was magical. We were rewarded with a mass of colour which kept us entertained for months. wild flower garden in Limerick
banana plant The fast growing banana plant is enjoying the heat wave in June.
