The Sensory Gardens


Dove House
Main Street
Republic of Ireland

Located at Dove House in Abbeyleix, County Laois, the Sensory Gardens are for everyone to enjoy. The gardens were created by a team of people with intellectual disabilities and stimulate the senses.

Vibrant plants appeal to the sense of sight, while hearing is reached through wind chimes and a humming stone. There are also scented plants and those with interesting textures. This is a garden with a history, which provides a peaceful haven of spiritual and sensory nourishment and contemplation for the visitor.
