Butler House & Gardens

Just behind Kilkenny Design Centre, a walkway leads into the beautiful Butler House and Gardens. It’s in these gardens that last spring I fell head over heels for a magnolia tree. Do you remember it?

The Walled Garden might be small (… by Irish standards) but it has an enchanting pond surrounded by really interesting stone blocks.

These stones are in fact from the plinth of Nelson Pillar in Dublin, which was blown up by nationalists in 1966.
