I love Gardens. To me garden reveals alot about the innerworkings of the gardeners mind. Some have gardens to impress Some for food Some for rest Some for meditation Some gardens are overtly orderly Some are wild Some are made from Miracle Gro Some from compost tea and dung Gardens are not just spaces . They are something more, expressions of the designers thoughts about themselves and of you, the viewer. A well designed garden may even predict your behavior, a great design leads you to see in definitive ways, even what you would think and how you should feel. Gardens are fragile relationship and when we learn to look beyond the obvious what they amount to is a promise. Carl Wright clearly loves the natural features of the Burren landscape which forms the canvas on which Caher Bridge Garden is designed upon. I was immediately reminded of Shakkei and Jièjǐng principles that incorporated background landscape into the composition garden. He is examplary in his understanding of the philosophy behind the use of Borrowed Scenery. His place is a cultural treasure.

Passed this little gem many times over the years and always admired it from the roadside. Only realised when I took the tour that it stretches far beyond what is visible from the bridge and includes wildflower meadow, fern collections, cottage gardens, hydrangea beds, sculpture and loads of natives trees and plants. Carl is a friendly informative guide, able to give both general info about the garden and tips about the plants, while also diving deeper into the more technical stuff for the more advanced questions. Can't wait to check it out again in the Spring

You'll see a variety of breathtaking and intimate landscapes that flow from one to another and take full advantage of the surrounding starkness of the Burren. Breathtaking views, cut through the hawthorne, and peaceful nooks by the water's edge. We visited on a bright sunny day and our tour included explanations of the light the gardener's created within the landscape. Carl has true joy and passion for the garden and delights in sharing his vast knowledge with visitors. This was a highlight of our week!

Passionate host for their private garden. Had extensive tour that was very generous and surprising as he uncovered ever extending sections of his garden (project). Respectful to the surrounding area features with gentle blending of the environment. You will need to book in advance.

What a gem of a garden and the owner is the guide and clearly loves showing folks around. Must book in advance and only 10 in each group. Amazing planting all on a limestone pavement.
