Gash GardensCastletown Laois - Ireland East
Gash Gardens were started from scratch in 1986 and today they house many interesting and unusual plants. Located at Castletown, County Laois, the gardens are now mature. One of the highlights is the Moon House Grotto, where a waterfall cascades into a lily pond. There is also a large rock garden with rare alpines, a heath garden, splendidly colourful herbaceous borders, rhododendrons and a collection of choice trees and shrubs. Visitors can also discover small pools, waterfalls, meandering streams and a secret passage leading to a riverside walk. Picnics are permitted at Gash Gardens and dogs on lead are welcome as well. Tours are available by appointment only. The gardens are not suitable for children.
