Coolcarrigan Gardens is a hidden oasis on the edge of the Bog of Allen, with a fantastic 15 acre garden full of rare and unusual trees that gives a fantastic display of continuous colour throughout the year. Meandering paths around the two lakes create surprises and vistas around every corner.
Approached by a wonderful long avenue of trees under planted with a mass of spring bulbs and a fantastic display of rhododendrons and azaleas. The herbaceous border and greenhouses adjacent to the house create a stunning setting complimented by two lakes with swans and ducks. A very unusual collection of trees and shrubs, the arboretum contains many rarities, and a special wildflower meadow. There is something of interest at all times of the year.
There is a small church in a woodland setting looking out on to parkland, which is available for hire for weddings. Coolcarrigan Garden can also be used for photos and drinks.
Coolcarrigan Gardens are open all year around for groups of 15+ and a guided tour will be given. Open to individual visits on designated dates or by appointment. The garden is very accessible for those with disabilities. Refreshments can be arranged by request.
