Clonaslee
More Information
This floral oasis in the Laois farmland was established 15 years ago. In the old farmyard, a sundial is surrounded by box hedging and flowers. A rambling red rose climbs the gable end of an old stone farm building. Near the house, a seated area is shaded by a pergola covered in wisteria. From here visitors can admire the rockeries, the raised lavender bed, the upright yews and the weeping copper beech.

Dunmore Country School
More Information
Although this garden was only established in 2005, it has already featured in the Farmers Journal, Irish Times and Irish Independent as well as Jane Powers’ book The Living Garden. Dunmore Country School has also featured on RTE’s Nationwide and Dermot’s Secret Garden. It covers approximately 1 acre. It is not a show garden, rather a working kitchen garden, which is dedicated to teaching. It is, in the owner's (Tanguy de Toulgoët) words, “not a display garden but a garden in progress”.
