Glenarm Castle's Gardens

 

This evening, I am posting information and images on one of Ireland’s oldest gardens.

Glenarm Castle occupies a coastal location about 32 miles/50 minutes north of Belfast.

Here can be found:

  • A sculpture by Angela Sykes, Countess of Antrim.
  • A circular yew hedge which was established in the 1820s.
  • Herb Garden.
  • Cascade and Fountain.
  • Herbaceous Border filled with a range of colourful flowering plants including tulips, paeonies, dahlias and penstemons.
  • Espaliered apples trees. these are pruned and tied to a frame.
  • Kitchen Garden for production of fruit and vegetables.
  •  1820s era Glasshouse n which apricots, nectarines and grapes are grown.
  • Other features including a wooden, carved obelisk and the Mount, an artificial mound which forms a viewpoint.
