Kilcoan Gardens

The gardens are situated within the peninsula of Islandmagee, with beautiful views over Larne Lough and include a cottage garden, orchard, vegetable area and herb garden. The recently established cut flower field includes eight raised beds full of annuals and five large perennial beds all of which contain plants suitable for cut flower production. There are also several established perennial beds, a willow arch and a newly planted prairie border.

Organically run, the gardens are full of a diverse range of wildlife including many different birds and insects, with several wildflower meadows and a small pond.

The gardens are open by appointment for garden visits and we run courses and events throughout the year.
