The Secret Garden
An award-winning, family-run garden centre, The Secret Garden is found in the countryside near Newmarket, County Cork. In addition to its pleasant gardens and shop, The Secret Garden includes a charming tea room where guests can enjoy tea and cakes.
The Secret Garden is tucked away near Newmarket in the beautiful countryside of North County Cork. Stocking a wide range of plants, trees, shrubs, perennials and gardening sundries, it’s the perfect place to come and find something different for the garden.
The garden centre naturally flows into an established garden, which has abundant wildlife, making a visit a relaxing occasion. The ducks and hens will always greet visitors as they wander around. Meanwhile, anyone looking for inspiration can order a cup of coffee and some gorgeous cake, grab a gardening book and find a quiet corner to hide away in and enjoy the birdsong and tranquillity.
The Secret Garden Centre is a family-run business that was established in 1996. The current owners Sarah and Brian took over in May 2002. Since then, The Secret Garden has grown and is now recognized as one of the region’s leading garden centres while still retaining a personal touch.
In February 2008, The Secret Garden was awarded the Bord Bia three-star rating, as well as Best Specialist Garden Centre at the National Amenity Horticulture Awards.
