Knockanree is a prize-winning 1.5 ha woodland garden influenced by many countries with European and Indian sculptures, a Japanese Zen circle, a Chinese bridge and a fine parterre.
Created to provide a secluded haven of peace and tranquility, Knockanree Garden is modeled on a Japanese “stroll” garden and was designed to allow specimen trees and shrubs to flourish and to provide a safe and bountiful environment for whatever wildlife choose it for their home.
This very diverse garden, while being the habitat for a large number of indigenous trees and plants, is also home to many foreign species which are rare in Ireland. Some areas are of a formal nature but for much of its 3.5 acres nature is the architect.
There are some interesting stone structures including a modern Dolmen, the Standing Epistle, the Moonstone and three Indian granite elephants. There is generous parking and partial disabled access. Dogs on leads are permitted. Knockanree gardens opened in aid of the Society for Poor People’s Development in Tamil Nadu, India.
