Spectacular views and sub-tropical plants on the Irish coast.
About Kells Bay House & Gardens
Want to explore a garden with the trickling of a mountain stream in your ear, the breeze tussling your hair and the sea lapping in the distance? Of course, you do. Set on the edge of the northern slopes of the Iveragh Peninsula, Kells Bay House and Gardens deliver all this and more throughout its six spectacular gardens.
With its vigorous sub-tropical planting, terrific mountain views and resident dinosaurs, it’s easy to see why Kells Bay House and Gardens is one of Ireland’s most coveted settings – particularly among families with young children. A rope bridge (Ireland’s longest) carries visitors into another world, where prehistoric giants carved out of wood sit among giant ferns. Elsewhere you’ll find an enchanting bamboo glade, babbling brook and a palm and succulent-studded garden.
After working up an appetite wandering, swimming, horse riding or fishing, intrepid explorers usually don’t need any persuasion when it comes to the onsite Thai restaurant.
