Celebrating 25 years in the Killashee Gardens

Tony laying out the red carpet for the launch of "Emma's Butterfly Garden"

We are extremely lucky to have such an experienced and talented gardener Tony Hanlon. Tony started his journey with Killashee over 25 years ago in the 80’s as the gardener for the nuns.  Tony has been the backbone of Killashee throughout the many years it has been a successful establishment under many guises from a nunnery to a boarding school and in recent years a luxury hotel. Tony is adored by staff and guests alike for his encyclopaedic knowledge of gardens, far superior to any google search (which he’ll personally assure you himself!). Not only will he provide great tips but he is the man with the real stories behind the history of Killashee. His latest horticultural masterpiece is the recently launched “Emma’s Butterfly Garden” – watch this space for the beautiful story behind his stunning creation.
