Hillside, Cork

A sprawling 4 acre garden is remarkable as quoted my Jane Powers, a leading news correspondent for the Irish Times. It is enviably situated on a steep South facing slope, enclosed by woodland and with a view overlooking Cork Harbour and the Lee estuary and just a short drive from Cork City.

It has two acres combining centuries of old age trees, Pine, Beach, and Larch with an under story of hazel and holly, and a haze of blue bells in the spring.

This mature 4 acre garden has won the top national award in Ireland in 1996 and again in the year 2000. A large sloping Plantsman’s Garden, featuring apart from trees Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Magnolias, wood land plants and exotic grass. Two ponds large rockery with waterfall, Scree beds and many gravel areas and a newly planted gravel bed in the old orchard. Many Australian and South African plants flourish in the garden.

Hillside has featured in many books and various Television programs, such as Ireland’s number one network RTE. A real Plantsman’s garden.Open: May – September by appointment.
