Below a small Palladian house looking out to Dublin Bay, lie steep stone terraces, built in the nineteenth century. Hundred year old trees give the three acre garden a romantic setting. Here are many unusual features: a Victorian dogs' cemetery, a sundial, a geometric kitchen garden, a small canal, old roses and herbaceous borders, leading to the pools of a Robinsonian wild garden. Beyond are woodland walks overlooking the Dargle Glen.

The story of the garden and its creators is charmingly told in Rubel Ross's prize winning book, "A Year in an Irish Garden", illustrated by Jeremy Williams.
