Glengarriff is the perfect spot for you if you love gardens

You’ll have time to take in the view from the lovely gardens we have here at Beechwood House B&B …

Then, 2hy not go seal spotting on a boat trip out to Garnish island where John Annan Bryce and Harold Peto built wonderful Italian Gardens that make the most of the warm waters from the Gulf Stream.

Glengarriff Nature Reserve gives you the opportunity to take a walk through ancient woodlands with spectacular views, and Glengarriff is home also home to Ewe Gardens, Ireland’s only interactive sculpture park.

The lovely gardens at Bantry House are only a short drive away too and form part of the West Cork Garden Trail.

Young children especially will take great pleasure in searching out its magical creatures and, after all your exploring, you can pause for thought in the park’s café.
