The Parks gardens are renowned for their vibrant colours during the summer.
There is much to see in the themed gardens which are dedicated to Ireland’s heritage and local historic figures of note. Featuring stunning flowers, shrubs and herbs with ponds, the gardens offer visitors a place to relax and unwind.
It’s also a nice place to stop for a picnic, with readily available picnic tables, before seeing the rest of what Lullymore has to offer.
The Theme Gardens are home to our ‘Fairy Tree’ or “Lone Bush” where the fairies may grant you a wish. You can also see our model of Newgrange one of the finest megalithic tombs in the world, a model of a Dolmen of which there are 350 in Ireland, as Crannog Garden and a Fulacht Fia which means ‘cooking place in the wild’ and is a method of cooking dating back to Bronze Age Ireland.
The Theme Gardens also feature a special Literary Garden in honor of three local writers, Matthew Farrell, who wrote the poem ‘Lullymore’ and who also provides a special audio tour of the Heritage Park, Maura Laverty the author of the novel ‘Never no More’, and the poet William A.Byrne whose poem ‘The Purple Heather’ reminds us of the beauty and value of the boglands.
