Garra Fado Garden is a cosy one acre garden set in the beautiful but exposed Beara peninsula. A member of the ‘West Cork Garden Trail’, the garden is filled with plants suited to life by the sea. Paths wind their way past flower borders, a pond and a kitchen garden with places to sit and relax throughout.

Guided walks
If you would like to know more about how we garden in this exposed corner of West Cork you can book a guided walk with Connie [BSc Horticulture]. With her expertise, enthusiasm, and experience, personal garden queries can also be discussed. Groups are welcome with pre booking.

Talks and Workshops:
If you would like to improve your garden knowledge and skills in a relaxed and friendly setting garden talks and workshops are held through out the season at Garra Fado. These are available to suit everyone’s ability and interest. Groups are welcome with prebooking.

Fancy a fun family outing together in the garden? Include the whole family in the learning process. Learn how to sow seeds, harvest your own lunch, see the honeybees at work and learn about where food really comes from.

The Nursery
Whether looking for a garden treat or some practical plants to develop your own garden space, Garra Fado has plants, pots and ornaments to suit whatever kind of garden you have, with a particular interest in seaside gardening.
