Beautiful garden with a huge collection of trees especially rhododendrons and eucalyptus. Public toilets are clean, spacious, bright, and wheel chair accessible. The ground is easy to walk. There is a wheelchair accessible cafe on site offering nice food and indoor seatings.

A great place for a walk. Very nicely arranged. When the rhododendrons are blooming, it's beautiful.. Entrance is still free, parking is also free. There is a cafe and a picnic area.

What a wonderful surprise! I'm ashamed to say I hadn't heard about this place and I'm originally from Wicklow! We had a beautiful walk through endless varieties of plants and trees and although I'm pretty plant ignorant I found myself stepping closer to read about the origin of many of them. , there's a free tour with expert guides, we didn't latch on for lack of time but I would definitely do it next time. At the end we had a very tasty meal in the coffee shop, only setback was that the toilets were out of order that day so the gallons of tea weighed heavily on us. Beautiful surroundings, history and botanical treasures, can't wait to go back.

We absolutely love to come over here. Beautiful gardens, very nicely maintened. Pity that the Buddhist prayer flags are gone. Anyway it's a great spot for photographing wild birds.

What a lovely way to spend a few hours for fathers day in this beautiful oasis. You can walk as little or as far as you like. The cafe is lovely and friendly.
