Carmel Duignan's Garden, Shankill

Carmel Duignan, a gardening writer and former television producer, has created a beautiful garden in the mild, maritime climate of south-east County Dublin.
A self-confessed plantaholic, she has amassed an extraordinary collection of plants - from old, familiar favourites to plants that are on the cutting edge of tenderness, rarity and current fashion.
Old and new have been plated together with flair and artistry and the resulting combinations of colour, shape and texture produce pleasing and innovative compositions throughout the garden.
Of particular interest are the small-flowered clematis and a good range of Pseudopanax.
From the plant collector, who craves the new, the hard-to-grow, or hard-to-find, to the gardener who simply appreciates the beauty of growing things, this garden offers interest and enjoyment.

Over the past 10 years I spend an average of 190 nights per annum in hotels throughout Europe and the USA, and the Trinity is my favourite hotel of all! The friendly staff and the accommodation make for an enjoyable stay.
