June Blake’s Garden

The very best gardens intrigue and restore us, and so it is with June Blake’s Garden, which is a rare fusion of inspired design and painterly planting. Situated in the townland of Tinode in West Wicklow and spread over three rural acres, the garden wraps itself around a handsome Victorian farm-steward’s cottage and is surrounded by a huddle of austerely beautiful, granite-stone farm buildings – one of which is the Cow House, an award-winning, modern architectural conversion.

June has spent the last 10 years developing her renowned garden at Tinode as well as a number of outbuildings in the picturesque estate. Together with architect Michael Kelly and builder Radek Kazmierski, they have created four contemporary spaces for self-catering accommodation, along with ‘The Grinding House’ as an event space, faithfully respecting the materials and structures of the old farm buildings.
