Terra Nova is one of Ireland's best known small, privately owned gardens and is a firm favourite with garden visitors of all ages.
A half acre that appears so much larger due to the clever use of weaving pathways, imaginative features and an ingenious use of space, nothing goes to waste here in this lush oasis.
Originally a wet, boggy field full of horsetail and rushes, it has been transformed beyond recognition and now features regularly in the media. A past winner of the prestigious title of “Best Garden in Ireland”, Terra Nova is dynamic, a space that never stands still.
Although it is without doubt, a plant lovers garden, it offers so much more, including a tropical Thai house and a magical fairy garden that will enchant children and adults alike.
- Adults €6

The garden is also home to a unique little gift shop selling all manner of fairies and magical things!

Seasonal gardening classes take place throughout the year. See website for details.
Groups are welcome by appointment and teas/coffees and cakes can be booked by prior arrangement.
