Not one but three snaps but I hope you’ll forgive me as I have a heap to choose from!
Today was day three of the Carlow Garden Festival and Helen Dillon was guiding two tours around Carlow gardens, the first of which took place in the grounds of Huntington Castle. There’s so much history tied up in this old castle I’m planning to write a separate post about it but in the meantime, here’s a snap of the Yew Tree Walk which is apparently inhabited by several ghosts. I’ve seen some fantastic images of yew tree walks in Ireland but as an amateur photographer this is my best effort. I can’t believe we’ve lived within a half an hour drive of Huntington and didn’t know these gardens existed, even more so as I helped a group of community gardeners in Clonegal last winter, just a five-minute walk away!
If you’d like to visit the gardens in the centre of Clonegal village, they’re open from May to September from 10.00am to 6.00pm, cost €5.00 for adults and €2.50 for children, which includes admission to the adventure playground though I’m not sure if that’s for the adults or children 😉
They also have a delightful tea room that I’ll share more images of when I write the Huntington blog post. In the meantime here’s Suzanna taking a deserved break from her farm.
As it’s #CarlowGardenFest I’ll share just one more snap, this time a map of the grounds at Huntington Castle gardens that will give you an idea of what’s in store for you if you visit. Have you visited Huntington Gardens yet or will you add it to your places to visit when you’re in the south-east of Ireland?
