29 Dec Rowallane Gardens, County Down
We have had a number of tours of Ireland where clients have been interested in gardens.
Rowallane has always been a favourite on those tours.
The gardens are in Saintfield , County Down.
It is a garden of exceptional interest and beauty.
It was started by Mr Hugh Armytage Moore in a wasteland of whines and outcrops of rocks.
The trees he planted back then have grown to give shelter and to possess a charm of their own.
The gardens consist of fifty acres of undulating ground.
That ground is divided into a series of gardens , each almost self-contained , and each with its characteristic features.
The specialist gardener can find outstanding magnolias , cherries , and wall plants.
There is a magnificent collection of rhododendron species and hybrids.
Add to that the exotic Chilean and Chinese shrubs , and Rowallane is well worth a visit.

We are a very safe private tour company.
