Mornington Garden

Garden reopens on  March 23,  2018

087 2256365  or  we are 7 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 Center in Dalkey where actors recreate our history !!!

Groups of 3 or more are welcome, please call in advance or the Garden Open sign is up.

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

Opening the garden is for you to see and enjoy what beauty nature has for us.The garden was originally planted in the late 30’ies 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 and some time chickens  ( if the fox hasn’t got them). Creativity in the Garden and from the Garden is what I do here in Mornington. Sharing and learning help me believe we can leave behind a world of which we will be proud.Gardens, big or small, how we care for them 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 when I was growing up in Galway.
