Kealkill, Co. Cork
A nursery and garden centre in West Cork. For plant-lovers, eco-activists, gardeners, and farmers, this is a great place to see all things green. They have a huge variety of native and exotic trees, hedging, shrubs, climbers, perennials, fruit trees, and roses. Ask the staff any questions about your planting needs, and they will try to help as best they can.
The sales building is another attraction here - made of rough timber, it looks like a modern tree house. Very cool.
Buy directly from the shop. Mail order is available in Ireland and the UK. Delivery is available. They have Gift Vouchers too, if you want to get a special something for that kind B&B owner, or a new friend you met in Ireland.
Open Monday to Saturday, 10AM to 6PM (including Bank Holidays).
Open Sundays 2:30PM to 6PM.

How to get there
From Ballylickey, take the road to Kealkill, then take the R584 toward Ballingeary. The nursery is 5-6 km after Kealkill, on the left side of the road. It is easy to see because open fields surround it.
