Mornington Garden

Garden August 2019

Garden is reopen in April  2022

also by appointment.

In Ireland, we have perhaps the best growing climate in the world. As a gardener, I am passionate about what I do and wish to share it with others.

Phone: 087-2256365 or email:
We are 10 minutes walk from Dalkey DART station, and just beside Fitzpatrick, Killiney Castle about 25 minutes from the city centre and 10 minutes from exit 16 M50.

Our postcode is A96 D293 and it should bring you to the door. Plenty of on-street free parking for cars and buses.

Lots of nice restaurants and pubs, even a Heritage Centre in Dalkey where actors recreate our history!!!

At the moment groups of 4 are welcome, travelling within 5K. Booking is essential / 087 2256365

Entrance fee is €6 per person and for groups, I can arrange refreshments so let me know.

Opening the garden is for you to see and enjoy what beauty nature has for us. I am passionate about life, in the soil, above the soil, all Gods creatures and my fellow human beings. I feel truly blessed to be able to do what I can and am thrilled to share it with you.

The garden was originally planted in the late 30’s and I have been very active with it over the last 8 years, because of this I feel I would like to share and inspire you.

I have a mixture of trees, shrubs, herbaceous borders, a gravel bed, little water features, sometimes chickens (if the fox hasn’t got them) and a vegetable and fruit garden. Creativity in the garden and from the garden is what I do here in Mornington. Sharing and learning to help me believe, we can leave behind a better world, big or small, how we care for gardens matters. We do have a part to play in protecting the future. This is still a family garden, as I still have some children’s swings (which I like to use) and a see-saw which reminds me of the one in my parents home when I was growing up in Galway.

What some visitors had to say.

May 2020 
Hi Annmarie,
Thank you so much once again for having us over to your garden yesterday – we all left both with a sense of peace and inspiration! What you’ve done since you moved into your lovely home is nothing short of phenomenal! I’m still amazed at how much you manage to get done. Thank you again! Kind regards, Dónal

What a beautiful garden to visit especially when the sun is shining. Annmarie was so helpful with all her tips for our own garden and had a wonderful tour of her amazing garden. Kids loved the swings and all the little ponds. Would recommend a visit to this place. S. Corrigan
Mornington Garden 28 July 2017

These visitors arrived at the gate on a very wet blustery-day and caught me, as she was heading off (they hadn’t phoned ahead) and I was delighted to welcome a lovely couple from Finland who had made the journey by DART to visit.
