As the urban sprawl of the western world continues the gardens of Ireland become more and more sacred. Ireland's climate, generally mild, moist and changeable without having extreame temperatures, make it perfect for the growth of some of nature's most incredible flora. The care and attention to detail of the Parks & Gardens of Ireland are something that can really only be appreciated first hand.

Although Ireland and Northern Ireland are relatively small countries the variations in their flora and fauna from one region to the next is amazing. From the Fuchsia of West Cork to the Bog Rosemary of County Offaly and from the wild deer of Killarney to the Connemara Pony. Each garden is has it's own individual beauty just waiting to be discovered.
