These gardens are laid out around a pretty Georgian house overlooking the River Barrow. Topiary, lawns, herbaceous and mixed plantings combine with architectural features and garden ornaments. A large water garden extends into woodland which is planted with rare trees and shrubs. The Italian loggia and pool is a perfect resting area from which to look across the quarter garden brimming with iris and roses.
New for 2015, is the Fairy Village in the woodland garden. Mr & Mrs Hedgehog and Freddie Fox await the arrival of the children to tell their story!
Kilmokea Gardens holds an Irish Heritage Garden certificate.

We organise garden visits and garden-orientated tours in Ireland and overseas. We have a winter lecture programme, practical gardening workshops in Spring and Summer, a list of Partner Gardens, the RHSI Journal published three times a year, the RHSI restoration of the walled garden at Russborough as our charity focus and an exciting Bicentenary Seminar planned for the RDS in September 2016. RHSI members have priority booking privileges but many events are also open to other interested gardeners.
