Derreen Garden 2-for-1 entry

Get one free entry with one full-paying adult, with your Gardeners’ World Magazine 2-for-1 entry card. Valid at 461 gardens.

Laid out 150 years ago, this mature woodland garden sits on the coast, offering magnificent views of the sea and mountains. Winding paths lead you through the superb collection of shrubs and trees, including many subtropical beauties and rare treasures. Rhododendrons light up the garden through spring and early summer, alongside bamboos, tree ferns, towering eucalyptus, conifers and ancient oaks. Wildlife thrives in this tranquil spot too, so you may spot sika deer, red squirrels and even Irish hares.


Important update

With the gradual easing of lockdown restrictions, gardens in the 2-for-1 directory are beginning to open.

To ensure the safety of visitors and staff, many have special measures in place, including pre-booking and limiting the number of visitors.

Before visiting a garden, please contact the garden directly to determine their opening status and any restrictions that may apply.

Please note: we’re unable to keep all individual 2-for-1 garden pages updated, but we will publish the latest details that we have on our weekly updates page from week commencing Monday 8 June, 2020.
