Situated in Kiltegan village, Patthana is one of the best small secret gardens in the country. It is the garden of an artist, the painter T.J. Maher, and it shows. Standing outside the old granite house, one gets no indication at all of the magical courtyard garden that lies behind the wooden gates. There are so many distractions here. Each time one looks in a certain direction something unnoticed only a little while before becomes apparent. “Patthana is a garden I wish I had created.” – The 100 Best Gardens in Ireland by Shirley Lanigan.
