Brigit's Garden takes you on a magical journey into the heart of Celtic...

Brigit's Garden takes you on a magical journey into the heart of Celtic heritage and mythology, making it one of the truly outstanding places to visit in the West of Ireland. The award-winning Celtic Gardens are widely regarded as one of the most spectacular in Ireland, set within 11 acres of native woodland & wildflower meadows. In addition to the Celtic Gardens visitors can enjoy the nature trail, an ancient ring fort (fairy fort), thatched roundhouse and crannog, and the calendar sundial, the largest in Ireland.

This well thought out garden pays homage to the amazing plant life of county Galway. The formally set up areas are brilliant and the woods and meadows are intriguing. We had a great lunch at the little cafe as well. Great find!!

We visited on recommendation from our accommodation and were happy with the experience. It's a bit manufactured but very pleasant and relaxing gardens with a strong celtic seasonal flavour. Thatched roofed huts, standing stones, flowers; fountains. All good.
