We visited Coolwater Gardens yesterday having passed by a number of times. We were intrigued as to the variety of plant life behind the gates without being aware of the wonderful hospitality, friendliness and encyclopedic knowledge that awaits us. Kevin had our small group of 4 (ranging in age from 5 to over 65) awestruck from our introductions. He shared his knowledge of his garden and surrounding areas along with his many stories and anecdotes with such passion and personality. The variety of life in the garden isn't limited to plants. We could have spend all afternoon peering into the ponds at the various visitors and residents which inhabit them. Kevin and Claire's generosity of time and information along with the wonderful refreshments and hospitality left us not only with minds full of wonder and amazement at the flora and fauna we encountered but also hearts full of calm and happiness having spent such a relaxing 2 and a half hours in what can only be described as a little piece of heaven.

Many thanks to Kevin who gave us a personal tour of Coolwater Garden recently. This garden is certainly a little hidden gem located near Fedamore Co Limerick From the moment we arrived we were intrigued by the landscape,and rare and unusual plants from all over the world which are all carefully labelled which makes it all the more interesting as you tour the garden. Kevin passion and knowledge also attention to every detail of this little gem is amazing. His use of stone and slate from the Burren in Co Clare which he has placed all around the garden which is another feature of this wonderful place. The large Pond is also another highlight beautiful lilies fill the pond also a floating pagoda. The end of the tour we enjoyed some refreshments in the cosy snug located at the end of the garden.

We had a lovely afternoon yesterday on a tour of Kevin Begley's fabulous garden. The garden includes a range of exotic trees, an enormous waterlily filled pond and a dry, arid outdoor section with cactus and agave plants. The bit that stole my heart however was the vast array of pots and containers with hundreds of sedums and saxifrages all squashed onto tiny cliff edges and steep rock outcrops. Heaven in miniature! And a big thanks for the cup of tea, other refreshments and conversation about all things gardening in the pagoda with Jacinta and Brian. Alison and Eoghan

This a little gem in Co Limerick. It is heaven for the alpine enthusiast, with troughs and pots of rare little plants abundantly scattered around the garden. Kevin has such an artistic eye and recycles things to create ornate screens, pagodas, ponds and sculptures throughout. He has scoured the world for rare plants from all over the globe and he creates the environment for them to grow happily. Clare was a hive of information about the plants and was a gracious hostess to us. The huge pond in the rear garden with floating pagoda was the piece de resistance.
