Welcome to Our Garden

Inspirational plant enthusiast’s garden created by a passionate Irish dairy farmer with an extraordinary vision

Plan Your Visit

Gash Gardens invite exploration and are a haven for people who are passionate about plants and gardens, as well as showcasing possibilities for garden novices seeking inspiration. If you are simply looking for an outing with friends or family, our garden provides an intimate, peaceful atmosphere in which to sit and chat. The garden is family owned and maintained and a warm welcome awaits you from the owners, Mary Keenan and Ross Doyle, who are always delighted to share their gardening experiences with you.

Our Nursery

Our plant nursery provides visitors with the opportunity to purchase plants that they might have seen growing in the gardens. Most of the plants are raised in the nursery and are propagated from the garden. We tend to offer for sale good garden worthy plants that we know and love ourselves. The range represents the common sense and sometimes eclectic tastes of two generations of gardening at Gash Gardens.

Landscaping Services

Ross Doyle has designed and landscaped gardens for over 30 years and takes great pride in delivering a practical, hands-on, personal and high-quality service. He can offer a range of design and landscaping services whether your garden is large or small, including planting design and layout, and construction of ponds, patios and timber features. His landscaping commissions include mostly private gardens and small-scale public and corporate spaces. Contact us for more information.

Talks & Consultancy

Mary Keenan lectures widely to garden and horticulture groups, offering a diverse range of talks on gardening. She also provides professional horticultural consultancy services to private, state and corporate clients.
