20. Liss Ard Gardens, the lovely Barley Cove near Skibbereen

and the Mizen Head Lighthouse, Co. Cork

SCENES from IRELAND


Liss Ard Gardens by Lissard House, near Skibbereen, West Cork, Ireland, are lovely 'natural' gardens to visit from a stroll around and a picnic. You can rest on some large stone blocks and contemplate in the 'amphitheatre' of the 'sky garden' (bottom left picture). The emphasis is on the natural native flora and fauna of Ireland with small 'fields' of wild flowers and grasses. Take a picnic and stroll around at your leisure!

There is also a 'sky garden' which consists of a huge crater in which you lie on the stone slabs and look up at the sky!

Looking across to Barley Cove from the road to the Mizen Head Lighthouse.

After visiting the Liss Ard Gardens we drove on to Mizen Head. Looking across to Barley Cove from the road to the Mizen Head Lighthouse and is much better than gazing idly unto the sky! there is too much to see and do on the south-west coast of Cork on this 'Atlantic' ocean facing part of Ireland.
