Kilgraney takes its name from the Irish ‘cill gréine’ which means ‘sunny hill’ or ‘sunny wood’. These wooded and secluded grounds consist of a series of interconnecting herbal gardens that are revealed gradually as you walk through the property. The enclosed kitchen garden supplies the guesthouse with fruit, vegetables and herbs. The medicinal garden, set in a granite courtyard, consists of nine raised beds and each is planted with herbs suitable for treating a particular part of the body. In lower courtyards you will find a fragrant sanctuary, a medieval monastic cloister garden and a circular cosmic garden to facilitate our understanding of the ancient belief that there is a connection between people, plants and the cosmos. A series of enclosed gardens accommodate a dyer’s garden and orchards featuring soft fruits, heritage Irish apple, medlar, quince and pear trees. A recently planted native tree walk is based on Bretha Comaithchesa – an eighthcentury Irish law that classified trees into four hierarchical divisions and series of laws governing their use.
