Travel Diaries – Garinish Island

written by Joanne October 2, 2014

Garinish or Garnish Island can be found in the sheltered harbour of Glengarriff in West Cork and is home to some beautiful and famous gardens.

There are two main gardens on the island – the walled garden and the Italian garden and the island can be reached by boat which departs from the pier in Glengarriff. Because of the gulf stream and the sheltered location of island a unique biosphere has been created and the place is home to a variety of tropical plants.
