Delta Sensory Gardens are part of the Irish gardens to visit. They are now well renowned and mature, having been open to the public for the past eight years. Their visitor numbers are growing steadily with many repeat visitors and word of mouth advertising. There is always something different to see from season to season in the 16 interconnecting gardens offering visitors of all ages a unique opportunity to rest and indulge their senses of touch, taste, smell, hearing and visual delight. The theme of each of the gardens celebrates the use of natural elements such as stone, water and wonderful foliage and plants. The feedback and comments from visitors speak for itself: “An absolute delight to experience such variety, a thrill to all the senses, peace, tranquillity and inspiration.” ” It was all very interesting, the best I have ever seen, it reflects on the mind, one relaxes and the soul is comforted”. Delta Centre hosts many popular events throughout the year, check www.deltasensorygardens.com for more details.
