Beautiful gardens, unusual plants, always something new to see and lovely walks. A hidden gem for garden enthusiasts and for anyone who enjoys easy walks in stunning environment. Make sure to say hello to friendly, laidback owner Jimmy Blake... he is a fountain of knowledge!

On holiday in Tallaght visiting friends, my partner said she had seen it on Gardner's World, friends hadn't heard of it ( 10 miles away ) but found it, even though there was no sign posts, and glad we did. Well worth a visit, 10/10.

The gardens are wonderful. The wooded valley is a fantastic creation with planting for future generations. Further on we found the meadow and views of the mountains. The whole visit was fantastic.

Whilst staying at June Blake's garden we visiting her brother, Jimi's, Hunting Brook Gardens. Very different in style but equally beautiful and amazing to see. Loved the walk through the woods to the meadow.

Reading previous reviews, we expected to find something special, so we happily paid € 6 each at the entrance. First impressions were great, a lovely front garden next to the owner's residence. Walked past a messy shed and into the forest. A gentle brook and...More
