Welcome to Blarney Castle Gardens where there is a lot more than meets the eye. Take your time to make a journey through diverse surroundings from tranquil to serene, to mystical and magical places.
From the top of the Castle you can take in the wonderful views of over 60 acres of sprawling parklands which include gardens, avenues, arboretums and waterways.

Carpets of bulbs throughout the grounds create a vibrant spring show. the gardens also boast a fine collection of Azaleas and Rhododendrons which add a wealth of colour.
In summer the herbaceous borders and rose beds provide the visitor with a splendid display of colour and structure.
Autumn is the time for arboretums to shine, with the trees taking over the show. Looking from the top of the castle provides an exceptional view.
Winter is traditionally the quiet time of year, but the winter scenery around the estate, particularly the lake and woodlands provide endless interest.
There is something to see all year round in what is a constantly changing and evolving enviroment. Your visit to the Blarney Gardens need never be the same.
