The healing garden of Knockrose is situated 500 feet above sea level nestling on the shoulder of The Scalp, in the south of County Dublin, Ireland.

The traditional farm house was built in 1750, and the border of Knockrose with the forests on the Scalp is the Pale Ditch. It is a place of peace and tranquillity, where it is blissfully easy to forget about the time-bound frantic pace of the 21st century, and relax to a more natural and healing pace. The scents and colours of the Cottage Garden are a joy to the senses and the Garden Studio is a wonderful place to create and exhibit art, share knowledge, or to just enjoy a cup of tea after seeing the garden.

Opening Hours

The garden is open every Friday 10am – 5pm until end of September.

Other times by appointment from 1st May until end of September 2017.
