The Gardens are open May through September by appointment.
Opening times: Everyday 11am to 6pm (Last appointment at 5pm)
Our gardens are located on the Beara Peninsula, about 25km from Glengarriff, County Cork. Tucked in as it is along the peninsular shoreline, and screened by Bere Island, Mill Cove gets shelter from the major ocean impact, and that relative shelter is reflected in the maturity and screening and greening of its acres of lush gardens, specimen trees and inlet cove. The gardens include more than 40 sculptures spread out over 4 acres of mature grounds. After visiting the gardens, guests can enjoy the gallery and studio.
Entry to the garden is €5 - this is redeemable against any purchase at the galleries
