Set on Valentia Island, County Kerry, Glanleam was built as a linen mill in 1775 and later served as the home of the Knights of Kerry. Sir Peter Fitzgerald, the 19th knight, realised the almost frost-free conditions and laid out 16 hectares of a subtropical garden around Glanleam House. He organised his gardens in a Robinsonian style, inter-planting natural habitats with exotics. This, along with recent extensive additions, has resulted in an enchanted garden, subtropical paradise, rainforest and jungle all at the same time.

Glanleam is famous for southern hemisphere and Asian plants, which thrive in the mild climate of Valentia Island.

The gardens are open from April to October. Guided tours are available and couch tours must be pre-booked.
