Garnish Island & Gardens

A refuge of peace in the sheltered harbour of Glengarriff in Bantry Bay, Garnish Island is the result of a creative partnership of Annan Bryce and Harold Peto, architect and garden designer. The island's beautiful walking routes offer a chance to admire rare specimens otherwise unseen in this climate. There is also a Martello Tower, from which there are spectacular views of the Bay. The island is accessible via ferry, which also passes by Seal Island - where Atlantic Grey Seals can be observed in the wild.
