On todays show Peter Donegan chats with Tony O'Mahony, Head Gardener at Inish Beg Estate, West Cork.
Inish Beg is a private island estate reached by bridge in the beautiful Ilen Estuary in stunning West Cork, 4.5 miles (7.5 km) from the town of Skibbereen. Pretty much to ruin, it was bought by the Keane family in 1997 and then began its transformation. As of now it comprises a series award winning houses or cottages and its 97 acres of gardens and woodlands have been designated as one of the 100 Best Gardens in Ireland (Liberties Press,2011).
Today we chat the estate, the gardens, it and Tony's history. And also how one turns a little of the great outdoors into a place where you could literally stay forever.
Huge thanks to Miriam and Bev of West Cork Garden Trail for making this interview possible. And also to the magnificient team at Inish Beg for being so very wonderful. Thank you both so very much.

Rated 5 out of
not what one should expect from a horticultural podcast. Donegan makes it sometimes wacky, always interesting. 10/ 10 for having the nerve to do that in an old school world
