Today, I decided to go with my dad to the Lissadell Specialist Flower fair which runs from 11am to 5pm. We arrived just after 11AM and we must say, the car park was already well filled. Lissadell house, which was built between 1830 & 1835, has been lovingly restored by it's owners Edward Walsh and Constance Cassidy. But more about the gardens and the house next week, when we will visit the amazing tourist attraction that Lissadell House is. And there is loads to see and do within the grounds (gardens, house, coach house, forge, galleries, tearoom,....)
But we were here for flowers, and these were displayed in the courtyard. Loads of plants and flowers were on display, some of the plants less common than others. For example, are you looking for papyrus plants, this is the place where you can buy them. Looking for a miniature Ginkgo Biloba, again the specialist plant growers had them on display.
And when you are in the courtyard, why not drop into the "Taste the Atlantic - A Seafood Journey " exhibition and learn all about oysters.
