Hunting Brook Gardens


Situated on the sunny, south-facing flanks of the Lamb Hill in the foothills of the lofty Wicklow mountains, Hunting Brook garden is the boldly idiosyncratic creation of Jimi Blake, the noted Irish horticulturist, teacher and plantsman who first came to prominence during the 1990s as the head gardener of the historic Airfield Gardens in Dundrum, Co Dublin. Hunting Brook is one of Ireland’s largest private collections of plants and surrounding his home are many examples of the fiercely colourful and theatrically beautiful, large-scale planting combinations for which Jimi has become so well known. These fill Hunting Brook’s sunny beds and steep banks and tumble down along the edges of its curling pathways. Hidden at the bottom of a secret, shady gorge that lies just west of the house is the chattering mountain stream that gives Hunting Brook its name and which runs through it like an artery, tumbling its way over granite boulders and through a tranquil woodland that Jimi has begun to clothe with an understorey of choice shade-loving plants.


County Kerry has always been a popular Irish county and one of the attractions that is now showing the counties different side is Waterworld Watersports. Being a family run business, this attraction specialises in everything water related and offers a very unique way to see County Kerry. From diving to surfing, from kids camps to a ride on the powerboat, there is lots of fun to be had no matter what you are looking for. Another thing worth mentioning, is the really high quality accommodation that Waterworld has to offer. Rooms with outstanding views, really helps you to work up the appetite for your day ahead. Not only can you stay here at Waterworld, but they have a great cafe and restaurant. All in all, I can guarantee a great time here and even if your not a watersports fan, the team here specialise in helping you go at your pace.
