  • The Good Hotel Guide
The gardens at Cashel House Hotel are a place of profound beauty, a place of meditation and relaxation, which benefit from the warmth of the gulf stream. Blossoms galore welcome spring in all its glory! Take a guided tour, or potter at your leisure. Benches are located throughout the garden for rest and reflection.


Withdrawn and quietly secluded, the gardens are a delight with their enchanting cultivations of exotic and exquisite flowering shrubs – many imported from Tibet – including rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias and the rare beautiful magnolias. Lists of rare trees are available at reception.


Our guests may walk along the seashore, through woods and streams and eventually onto the summit of Cashel Hill where the breathtaking views of sea, sky and coastline are well worth the climb.


We also boast our own organic herb garden. No chemicals are needed to encourage growth, as a mixture of seaweed from the beach combined with a few secret ingredients, are used as a magnificent fertilizer!
