Planning to visit Ireland? I have an instagrammable place for you! In Inistioge, County Kilkenny, there’s a garden with an observatory-inspired cafe. It’s located 1 kilometer from the village. Woodstock Gardens and Arboretum boasts of its Rose walled garden, Noble Fir walk, Monkey Puzzle Avenue, and a cafe that looks like an observatory.

The admission fee to the place is €4 per car (includes all the occupants) giving access to all the gardens, woodland trails, and the tea room. Not bad, right?

If you’re looking a tranquil place within County Dublin – whether you’re alone, with friends or family, or with your dog, this is one of those places you’ll enjoy.

Fancy a tea? Head on to their stunning tea room.

This tree must be so old! Look at that size!


Monkey Puzzle Avenue Walk

The trees were called monkey puzzle because they were indeed a puzzle for the monkeys on how to climb them. ^_^


The rose walled garden

My travel buddy, not so happy to pose with the roses, hehehe!


Plenty of garden space to enjoy

I took us about 3 hours to roam the place, with the inclusion of time to take pictures.

The place is dog-friendly, just remember to keep them on a leash and clean up after them.
