Helen Dillon at Shankill Castle 

Garden tour

Helen Dillon

 

A new addition on the Carlow Garden Trail, the gardens at Shankill are an oasis of tranquillity and natural beauty. Helen Dillon leads visitors through the remnants of the 18th century lime tree allées, 19th century laurel lawns, the moated and walled garden as well as Victorian classics such as the now gigantic sequoias, and 20th century self-sown ash trees. An unmissable opportunity to tour this great garden in the company of one of Ireland’s greatest gardeners.
