First established over 30 years ago in an exposed coastal location overlooking Donegal Bay. The garden falls away from the house in a series of hidden terraces with an extensive range of plants, many unusual species suited to the coastal location. Imaginative use of grasses, rich exotic planting and high quality stone-work all feature. Big pots and containers planted with specimen plants are especially good. A particularly fine example of how a difficult site can be transformed. The garden was featured in the Jan/Feb 2018 edition of The Irish Garden magazine.
