  • A garden for the romantic; quiet and peaceful, of woodlands sloping down to a sea-estuary with interesting and varied wild life. Over 19 acres of informal gardens based on a number of woodland glades and a serpentine mill-pond, amid a scene reminiscent of the background of a Douanier Rousseau painting by which it was inspired. Many tender and rare plants lovingly maintained as the life work of Gwendoline and Peter Harold-Barry, who purchased Creagh in 1945. The large walled garden dating from the Regency period, has been restored as a traditional and organic kitchen garden, with many varieties of domestic fowl in the orchard. New areas of interest include a mixed and herbaceous border and further woodland walks including Tree Ferns and Loderi Rhododendrons. The gardens have been restored with the assistance of an ERDF grant through the Great Gardens of Ireland Restoration Programme FÁS scheme. Read more ….
