Knockpatrick Gardens

View The Garden


Knockpatrick garden is almost 100 years old and was started by Tim’s father in the 1920’s. Some of the older trees and shrubs include magnolias, crinodendrons, beech and red horse chestnuts. The maturity of the older trees and shrubs offer wonderful shelter to more tender shrubs and plants.

The owners Tim and Helen O’Brien are passionate gardeners and are always happy to lend advice or ideas for your own garden.
