Reviewed October 8, 2013

A beautiful garden with bamboo forests, horthensia bushes, ancient trees and romantic corners with beautiful views over the bay to spend a moment out of time. The owners have done a fantastic job there. Be sure to stop in the coffee shop to taste the carrot cake! Very friendly welcome.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We went on a drizzly day but it didn't take away from the pleasurable experience at the park. There's a lovely walk around Bantry Bay and areas where you can sit to look out onto the bay. The variety of plants they have there are varied and I can imagine on a day earlier in the year it would be stunning. We still enjoyed our visit and will go again on our next visit.

“Great Day at Bamboo Park”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

What a wonderful time we enjoyed at the Bamboo Park, in Glengarriff, Co. Cork while on holiday there. The owners were on site and were so friendly. They told us their story of the creation of the Bamboo park, which was so interesting. It is hard to believe that only thirteen years ago, the site was but a field! All ages would enjoy this attraction - there are no boundaries of age! We enjoyed some fabulous home baking and coffee in their cafe which put the perfect end to a perfect day. The Bamboo park is well worth a visit - surprisingly enjoyable! Thanks to all there - Owen, Barbara & Rachael Hurley.

“Peaceful and interesting”

Had a quick walk around this park. Some beautiful plants (not just bamboo) and really liked the walk down to the 'harbour'. Lovely and peaceful!

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

For a small area there was a lot to see and was impressed with the different garden areas. Beautiful setting and worth a visit. Negative - map was not very good and we did wander off the path
