A great evening with Deirdre and friends,
food, setting and ambience were all a great experience,
you've got to be cat friendly as they share the gardens with you,
go for a unique experience

Worth the steep climb up past Durrell's old house just for the homemade lemonade! Very peaceful garden and friendly, welcoming hostess.

These are the gardens to a private house, past the Bitter Lemons House, towards the top of the village, so by the time you get there you are ready for a drink. Owned by Irini - a very English lady, who has many cats and dogs but don't be put off by that. The gardens are colourful and quirky. We enjoyed a lemonade and beer there one morning.Worth a visit. And the lemonade I think must be home made.

We stumbled upon 'The Gardens of Irini' one hot afternoon whilst visiting Bellapais Abbey, and what a treasure we stumbled upon! We were greeted by the delightful and friendly owner, Deidre Guthrie. I sampled the home made lemonade and my Husbund had the local beer. We were so taken by the whole ambience of the place we booked to have an evening meal on our last night in Cyprus. The meal was delicious, and the conversation interesting as Deidre is a fount of information on the local area having lived there for many years, and had many a story to regale us with. We shall definately return on our next visit to the beautiful island of Cyprus, one of my favourite places on earth. Thank you Deidre for your hospitality, and your potent Brandy Sours!

Visited here in August of 2011 and after a long slog up the steep hill to get there Diedrie's delightful homemade lemonade certainly hit the spot, we made reservations for dinner the following evening and were pleasantly surprised to find we were to be the only dinner guests, the candlelit garden was a joy to behold and then the food arrived woohoo a delight from start to finish, the highlight being the kleftiko, we adored being joined by Tiger, just one of the many cats around who sat at table with us when given the nod to do so, we thoroughly enjoyed sharing our meal with him and he left us for a short while only to return later when it was time for coffee and liqueurs, the local coffee liqueur went down a right treat with me and the Brandy Sour I enjoyed with dinner was also lovely, a truly magical experience for us, the walk back down to the village centre following Diedre's directions was much less taxing also, Take a torch to make navigating the stairs easier and enjoy this quirky gem of a place
