Surrounded by parkland with rare and mature trees, Tourin Garden extends over 5 acres to the banks of the river Blackwater.
....Mature Oak, Beech, Cedar, Yew, Pines and A Champion London Plain Tree date from the original garden and parkland. In the late 1800 the gardens were extended and laid out on the advice of Richard Beamish, a great friend of Richard Musgrave’s and part owner of the famous Beamish & Crawford Brewery in Cork.The present owners’ mother planted a fine collection of camellias, magnolias, rare shrubs and specie trees. Deciduous azaleas add their bright colours in late spring, early summer.
....Tourin is predominately a spring garden with carpets of snowdrops, daffodils and other bulbs. In summer a riot of vibrant colour greets the visitor to the Walled Garden, where cutting flowers, fruit, vegetables and herbs are grown in mixed profusion. An important collection of over one hundred different Bearded Iris flower in May/June.
