Kilmokea Country Manor and Gardens is situated on Great Island near Campile, New Ross where no site in Ireland can boast greater antiquity nor more general embrace by all and every invader of which our archaeology, mythology and history is aware. There is a depth of richness in the unspoilt nature of these gardens where the first Tree Fairy Village of its kind in Ireland attracts thousands of Fairy hunters who all adore the ever increasing avenues of fairy homes in the beautiful ancient trees growing in the woodland.
The wall garden is a place of peace and reflection with rose gardens, pools and herbaceous planting. Love seats are placed around every corner waiting to provide comfort for moments of contemplation. The potager designed as a box maize grows fruit and vegetables for the big house where B&B guests enjoy Organic pleasures. Spring water cascades in series of waterfalls through the woodland garden flowing past The Viking Settlement, Norman Motte, and Smaug the tree dragon before entering The Myrtle wood story where woodland creatures live in lanterns in the trees waiting to meet garden visitors.
To depict the historical influence of Kilmokea, we have created a small Viking settlement and a Norman Motte and Baily. All these great new additions will create the perfect day out for everybody.
These peaceful spiritual gardens open during Easter weekend. Garden opening times are from 10am daily with the Cafe open from 12 noon. The Garden Cafe is situated in the Georgian conservatory. Delicious organic salads and homemade fair is served. There is a Car Park and Guest Lavatories (wheelchair accessible).
