The most comprehensive guide ever to the gardens of Ireland

From the tiniest town garden to the grandest castle demense and historic country house; from the most hidden sanctuary to our best loved properties, this guide takes you on a grand our of Ireland and 427 gardens that you can visit.

Meet gardeners who tend trees and flowers, build miniature castles, mind orphaned owls and even one who found a garden use for the nose cone of a jumbo jet.

There are gardens that boast art galleries, riding school and temples to Egyptian goddesses.  Other with museums dedicated to science and anatomy, Lady Gregory, the Great Famine, agriculture and Irish furniture.
