Blarney Castle Gardens

Be sure not to miss this exciting opportunity to receive a guided tour from Blarney’s Head Gardener, Adam Whitbourn. A Fern Garden, Poison Garden, Irish Garden, Bog Garden, Arboretums and Pinetum are just some of the treats that lay in store. Adam and his team have made so many astounding changes in such a short space of time… The new Kennedy Primrose bed, large drifts of new Rhododendrons and Azaleas, Hosta garden, new bamboos and rare conifers, a new Jungle border, a new waterfall in the fern garden to name a few. Whitbourn’s latest projects include an introduction of a huge collection of Japanese maple varieties and an amazing neolithic standing stone circle. With the Stable Yard Cafe within the gardens, there’s an opportunity for us all to catch-up afterward over some refreshments. A day out among many gardening friends, in an amazing garden.
