Last Sunday we went to visit a walled garden near Loughrea, Co. Galway, called Woodville Walled Garden. Woodville House has a long and fascinating history, you can read about it here, connected to Lady Augusta and the nearby Coole Park in Gort.This garden, which, by 2005 was being used as a farm field, started its transformation that year, and nine years later is blossoming into something really, really beautiful, thanks to the vision of its owners; Marie the Head Gardener and the numerous volunteers.
They held “Snowdrop Day” there on the 8th of February; we didn’t manage to make that day, but went over the following day. Despite it being bitterly cold, the rain held off the entire time and we had a lovely walk and tour around the gardens.
A true hidden treasure.
