Dublin Gardens - Carysfort Lodge

Carysfort Lodge, home of Siobhan and David Dillon is an old-fashioned Regency house in a terrace close to the centre of Blackrock – a bustling suburb of Dublin. The garden has been created over the past thirty-five years and is now, thanks to good structure and some beautiful trees, an oasis of peace and beauty in a busy urban setting – a veritable rus in urbe!

Siobhan is a textile artist – the photograph above shows an example of her work – and her talents can be seen in the good design of the garden and the charming mixed borders where plants mingle in carefully controlled abandon! Siobhan’s needlework pictures are often available for purchase. Among the many features of this lovely garden, the trees are of particular interest especially a fine Magnolia x soulangeana and a Xanthocyparis nootkensis Pendula.
