Bamboo Park in Glengariff / Ireland is such an unique place full of exotic plants.
It was created in 1999 by Serge de Thibault and his wife, Claudine (which I had an opportunity to meet). It’s full of bamboos, tree -ferns, palms, fuchias, eucalyptus and many others. So many different species in one place! Bamboo Park is probably the most romantic place in Glengariff Plants are also for sale if you want take some of them with yourself. The Park is easy to find – you can not miss the entrance, a huge japanese style-gate on the main road, the N71 coastal road from Bantry to Kenmare in Glengarriff.
The Park is open everyday 9 a.m. til 7 p.m. If you want to read more about Glengariff, check this post.
You can get here travelling by Bus Eireann ( route 236, f.e. from Cork Bus Station – Parnell Place to Glengariff Pharmacy stop about 21 EURO per single ticket). There is also a route with change in Bantry, which is highly recommended – Bantry is a lovely place, really worth visit!
