“I recently visited the gardens here with my boyfriend Julius after being recommended by friends in Scotland. It was well worth the visit and we both thoroughly enjoyed the information provided around the garden and all of the hidden little gems. Immense work must go into keeping those gardens so well maintained, it’s a credit to the friendly owner who we met on the end of our visit. We will highly recommend to all our friends and family! ” Ange W , Trip Advisor, June 2018
Run by Emma and Mark Hewlett, Kilmokea Country Manor & Gardens is situated on Great Island near Campile, New Ross where no site in Ireland can boast greater antiquity nor more general embrace by all and every invader of which our archaeology, mythology and history is aware. There is a depth of richness in the unspoilt nature of these gardens where the first Tree Fairy Village of its kind in Ireland attracts thousands of Fairy hunters who all adore the ever increasing avenues of fairy homes in the beautiful ancient trees growing in the woodland.
The wall garden is a place of peace and reflection with rose gardens, pools and herbaceous planting. Love seats are placed around every corner waiting to provide comfort for moments of contemplation. The potager designed as a box maize grows fruit and vegetables for the big house where B&B guests enjoy Organic pleasures. Spring water cascades in series of waterfalls through the woodland garden flowing past The Viking Settlement, Norman Motte,& Smaug the tree dragon before entering ‘The Myrtle wood’ story where woodland creatures live in lanterns in the trees waiting to meet garden visitors.
