While smaller in size, this book remains lavishly illustrated and bursting with information on the multitude of beautiful gardens to be seen and loved across our island. The 100 Best Gardens in Ireland is a must-have for gardeners and tourists as well as those lovers of beauty planning their summer outings!
The 100 Best Gardens in Ireland takes readers on an informative, interesting and pictorial tour of some of Ireland’s most spectacular gardens. Written by journalist Shirley Lanigan, The 100 Best Gardens in Ireland explores the gardens’ histories, design, flora and fauna, and also includes interviews with owners, curators and gardeners. In addition, it acts as a practical guide, providing information on fees, opening hours, etc, and being pocket sized it is the ideal companion while travelling across Ireland to visit these remarkable horticultural sights.
Building on Shirley Lanigan’s previous book on Irish gardens, which was hailed as “probably the most comprehensive guide to Irish gardens, North and South, published to date”, The 100 Best Gardens in Ireland is for anyone who can appreciate the very best of Irish gardens, from the truly magnificent and celebrated to the never-before-seen secret gardens.
