Greenan Maze

Not strictly a garden, but it is an entertaining day out, especially for the kids, and it contains a well sign-posted nature walk.

Standing on half an acre, the Celtic maze will positively puzzle you. A stream flows through it to the pond in the middle and a viewing tower overlooks the paths below. The Solstice Maze is a relaxing, contemplative pathway for adults and toddlers alike, set within a large stone circle.

THE GREENAN TEA ROOMS

A traditional Irish cottage contains the tea-rooms where you can enjoy morning and afternoon teas, light lunches and a large variety of home-baked goodies. The large tea-rooms has the capacity to seat 50 persons approx., with further seating outside. The toilets include child-friendly amenities.

CRAFT SHOP COFFEE DOCK

When the Tea Rooms is NOT open the craft-shop sells great organic coffee, Lattes, Cappucino's, Espresso's and hot chocolates.

THE BOTTLE MUSEUM

The bottle museum was established in 1985 and holds a very large collection of antique 19th and early 20th century Irish bottles, jars and vessels, some of which were excavated on the farm.

THE OLD FARMHOUSE MUSEUM

Dating from the 16th century, the Old Farmhouse was a safe-house for Irish rebels, such as Michael Dwyer, in the 1798 rebellion. Genuine weapons, including pikes, are on display. The Farmhouse is fully restored with original furniture and utensils in the bedroom, dairy and kitchen. It was last lived in by the Seanchai (Story Teller) Tom O'Neill.

WILD NATURE WALK

The nature trail is a tranquil walk which meanders by Ballinanty Brook through beautiful unspoilt countryside and a wild-life nature reserve. It leads to the Dragonfly Walk which is a raised wooden walkway winding through native woodlands and wetlands reaching three peaceful ponds with raised viewing platforms.

FARM ANIMALS

Everyone will love viewing the farm animals in the paddocks. With many cute and cuddly new additions during the year, you can often see baby lambs, pig-lets, geese, turkey and chicks .
