There’s A Fairy Fort Oasis With A Hobbit House Waiting For You In Limerick

Did you know that burrowed away in the Golden Vale of Co. Limerick is a stunning oasis from urban life which, given it's built in a fairy fort that's over 1,000 years old, feels like total magic?

Terra Nova is one of Ireland's best kept secrets. A stunning half acre of land that has been cultivated and manicured to perfection, the garden is a visual feast that is sure to delight any child, nature lover or champion of the fairy population in Ireland.

The garden's official website reads: "Many strange and wonderful things have happened here over the years and the fairies' strong presence can be felt by many visitors." We don't know about you but we, quite frankly, would love nothing more than to strongly feel the presence of fairies in a Limerick garden.

For the true fairy enthusiasts amongst us Terra Nova also runs a fairy shop - 'Ireland's leading fairy shop' we'll have you know - stocking an impressively large array of trinkets and souvenirs inspired by the fairies, sprites and other mythical woodland creatures.


Once you've enjoyed a prance around the stunning gardens and picked up whatever takes your fancy at the fairy shop, you can look forward to a complimentary cup of tae at the garden's Hobbit Tea House.

If that's not enough to convince you, the reviews speak for themselves. "An absolute hidden gem in county limerick," wrote TripAdvisor reviewer Pauline. "Fairies and Pixies lurking in every corner." What more could you want only free cups of tea and balls to the wall fairies and pixies?

"Absolutely magical," said another reviewer named Nic. "We have been to so many fairy trails but none with an intriguing and consistent storyline," she continued. A cohesive and believable plot is so crucial when perusing fairy gardens, we've always found.

If you fancy a frolic around the Terra Nova gardens, don't expect to pay an arm and a leg. Entry costs just €6.00 for adults and children go for only a fiver. You can find out more of the finer details on the garden's official website here.
