Myself and my family just adore Derreen Garden and Cafe. My parents live close by and we visit a couple of times a month. The grounds are stunning, so many beautifully maintained tracks that weave around, taking you to the waterfront and deep into the forest. There are so many different type of trees and interesting vegetation including the otherworldly tree ferns. There are lots of fairies in the woods too, and you can spot their houses all around! The cafe is wonderful, great coffee and generous home baked cakes and savoury foods. The service is so friendly and swift and it's reasonably priced too. And you can buy plants! This is a gorgeous hidden gem for coffee and nature immersion.

We were looking forward to visiting the gardens as they sound amazing. Unfortunately the gravel paths proved impassable for either my mobility scooter or manual wheelchair (even with the help of a pusher). That said we were able to enjoy delicious coffee and cake in the sunny café garden.

Derwen Garden was well worth the visit , I spent pretty all day there , starting with a hike up Knockatee to get me ready for a fabulous lunch of pan-fried scallops, and then thanks to unexpected sunshine was able to spend the rest of the day ambling through the forest and gardens and take in all the great scenery by the lakeside. Definitely recommend a visit here if your in the area

If you are in Kenmare or heading out to explore the Berea Peninsula, Do Not miss Derreen Garden! Not just for plant lovers; walkers, hikers, shoppers and the like will have a wonderful time here! There are native red deer and plants that were planted in the 1800’s! Wonderful cafe and coffee shop with fun gift shop. Very friendly people to welcome you!

A beauiful walk through a garden near the sea. Lots of different species of ferns and Rhododendron. The cafe has a very nice selection for a lunch ( no fish&chips) and gorgeous cakes! We visited the garden and went several times to the cafe!
