There is a special place in the south-west of Ireland. It’s a haven for the soul and a great place to feed the body too. Glebe Gardens is small, but, with a creative approach to a unique setting, a visit here feels as if you have stepped into a better world. The garden was made by Jean and Peter Perry, who know a lot about growing vegetables as well as making the most of flowers, shrubs and herbs.They also embrace the sustainable principles that make good things flourish. If you want to stop by and soak up some of the tranquillity, then be prepared to enjoy the restaurant too: this won the Irish Times Best Cafe/Teashop in Ireland award in 2015. But really it’s the garden where everything began and it’s the garden that makes this a truly special place.
