Bit disappointment with the description, had too much expectations
Vinodh_J, Jun 2021
Beautiful scenic but it doesnt take 5 hours to complete the visit, I guess its build in 2.5 acres of land near the beach. First thing is parking, if you expect private parking for customer, you will be disappointed, you may have to park on roadside. Unless you want to meditate or spend time with nature, You will finish the tour in an hour. Overall, I didnt feel satisfied to spend 6 euros. I am sorry
Response from Host, Jun 2021
Hi, sorry your were disappointed, most visitors spend 1 hour or 1.5 hours in the gardens as you did doing the self-guided tour, but you do have the option to stay there for as long as you want to enjoy the beautiful gardens, many people come to sit and relax and enjoy the views in this very unique space and the tea/coffee cakes etc. The Self-guided tour does only take an hour but then your time is your own to enjoy the rest. We are set in the old Seaside Town of Tramore and as in many old Irish Towns Parking is on street. We do get alot of compliments on the value for money the gardens offers, especially if you have time to enjoy it. Hopefully you will be able to stay longer if you ever visit again and we hope that you can.

Beautiful scenic n peaceful place to be. It's a short tour so take your time while walking so as not to be dissapointed.
These gardens are a little off the...

These gardens are a little off the beaten path, but worth a visit if you have the time. They are thoughtfully designed and well done. They are only a year or so old, so check back when they are about twenty years old.....should be really nice then.
