Located in Milltown, County Kerry, Dhu Varren Garden provides all the elements of a botanical garden within its 1 hectare of land. Two large landscaped glasshouses provide both subtropical and arid plant displays. The former features tropical butterflies in high summer.

Outdoors, landscaped palm and succulent gardens with rock features have been created. Subtropical beds, alpines, fernery, water gardens, an herb garden, yucca avenue and more provide variety.
