Garinish Island

An island in Glengarriff Harbour, part of Bantry Bay in southwest Ireland. The Office of Public Works maintains the gardens on the island. The garden was designed by Harold Peto, for its owner Annan Bryce, a native of Belfast, who, with his wife Violet, purchased the island from the War Office in 1910. Violet died in 1939 and their son Roland bequeathed the island to the Irish nation in 1953.
