Glengarriff Bay is considered by some to be one of the most beautiful bays in Ireland. It is a true oasis of greenery, punctuated by lush islets covered with pink flowers and surrounded by mountains. The Victorians were the first to make this village with its very mild climate a fashionable holiday resort. A microclimate caused by the Gulf Stream, a peat-rich soil and almost non-existent frosts have encouraged horticulturists to design real exotic gardens, the most famous of which is the Garinish Island Garden, created in the 1920s by Annan Bryce and Harold Peto. Since 2000, there is also the Bamboo Park, an initiative of a couple from Belgium.
