Ballyboy House is located near Clogheen in County Tipperary and is home to a guest house, holiday cottage and 2 hectares of splendid gardens. To the south there are many different garden areas, or 'rooms', overlooking the River Tar and the ruins of Ballyboy Castle. Other areas of the garden feature herbaceous borders, a fountain and pergola with stunning views of the Knockmealdown Mountains and the famous Vee Pass. A pathway meanders to a walled area where a large collection of shrubs and trees flourish.
The north facing 'front lawn' has many island beds with a large array of shrubs, perennials, roses, grasses and trees - including handkerchief, tulip, judas and many others. The Viburnum walk leads to another world where nature is at its best, and the lake is home to water hens, wild duck and other wildlife.
This magical country garden will appeal to any plant lover, as it offers a variety of styles, garden designs and woodland flora. There is a mix of formal and informal areas offering something for every season. Refer to website for more details for the garden and on-site tea room opening times. Private parties and groups are welcome.
