Home to many native species, the gardens thrive in the Gulf Stream warmed climate of Kenmare and its environs. In Queen’s Walk , this pleasant 19th century plantation is a gem hidden within the 300-acre Estate of Sheen Falls Lodgeluxury hotel in Kerry Ireland, planted for Queen Victoria in anticipation of her visit to the area in 1861. Old and rare varieties of rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias sit alongside Iris Japonica and giant tree ferns, creating a unique, lingering scent.
