Dublin Gardens - Rathmichael Lodge

Rathmichael Lodge, a charming rambling house, situated between the mountains and the sea, has an enchanting 2.5ha old-world garden. It reflects the characters of Corinne and Richard Hewat and exudes atmosphere, fragrance and colour due, in part, to the over one hundred roses that grow there. 

Old roses and modern hybrids, climbers and shrubs – they revel in the benign climate of this garden and they proliferate on walls, through apple trees, around an ancient orchard and mingle in abundant borders with other rare and interesting plants. A particularly inspiring sight is Rosa ’Parade’ growing on the back wall of the ochre- coloured house.

Paths lead through the colourful borders to a vegetable garden, tennis court and up a hazel walk to a pavilion in a tranquil meadow, guarded by an ever-present resident fox!
