KilfaneThomastownKilkennyRepublic of Ireland
Influenced by Rousseau and the Romantic movement of the late 18th century, Kilfane Glen is a rugged but beautiful 6-hectare garden that has retained its original character as conceived by the prominent Power family in the 1790s. The idyllic landscape, which features wild fox-gloves, ferns and other plants used during the Powers’ time, was a popular place for leisure in the early-19th century. Found in County Kilkenny and open to the public in July and August, Kilfane Glen comprises a 30-foot waterfall, rustic grotto and thatched summerhouse, where visitors may take a short break from strolling the grounds. Each year, the Kilfane Trust invites one or two artists to create works for the property, so guests can take in wonderful pieces of contemporary art on the upper level.2017 Opening dates to be confirmed. It is advised to contact the property directly prior to making arrangements to visit.
