Yay! Stand up for the little people. Smile www.coolwatergarden.com Thanks Tagwex for not hob-nobbing to the big estates.

If you do want a big estate then Blarney has them beat. Blarney now has the most garden visitors in the country and continues to improve month after month after month.

Two other places outpacing most with visitor numbers are

Wells
&
Kylemore Abbey.

But, I have a Japanese style coffee shop with no till in it!
Biscuits and also a glass of Port for non-drivers too. Smile
Personal tour of 1 hour 10 minutes.
Visits must be booked in advance as I can't be hanging around all day, every day, seven days of the week.



Visitors can be annoying and frustrating e.g. We were out in the middle of Lough Derg on the boat one day and a woman rings up, "We'd like to see your garden." Replied. "We're in the middle of Lough Derg at the moment." "Oh, but we did want to see it! "OK, then. We'll finish our trip shortly and be back at Coolwater at 4pm." "OK. Thanks." she said. "See you there."

4.30pm comes and no sign of the party. Ring her up and say that we're back. "Oh. We've changed our mind."
That's the LAST time we'll ever cut short a boat trip.

Got another lot. Wanted to see the garden Stephen's Day. Bit miffed when I said, "No. The house is full of family back for Christmas."

Visitorsssss !!!!!! (But 99.9% are OK. Smile Smile

Salthill Garden, Mountcharles takes some beating. Not that big, but plenty to see. Plenty of ideas to take away.
