Kilfane Glen and Waterfall

Kilfane Glen and Waterfall is a pristine example of a romantic era garden dating from the 1790s. Untouched for 200 years, it is a picturesque paradise with a waterfall tumbling its way to a rushing stream and woodland paths leading to a cottage orné. Tiny bridges sit among ancient trees, wild fox-gloves, ferns and other historically correct 18th century planting.

While restoration of the cottage and glen was taking place, a different project emerged in the upper garden. Kilfane Trust was born to help introduce new art and artists to Ireland. Artists are invited to propose work and then accepted proposals are created in situ. The open areas and woods with inter-connecting paths provide excellent spaces to work in. Read more about the trust and art at Kilfane.

The garden is listed as an Irish Heritage garden and was awarded assistance in 1993 by the European Union Cultural Commission. As an amenity it covers about 15 acres of easily accessible natural landscape.

    Great shot Joe, I have a new ND4 filter and I am itching to take something like this as soon as I find a suitable location.

    Thanks Francis. I have a few ND filters as well but usually I just use the tripod and a small aperture, which gives a long shuttr speed.
