Tea Room Exterior
The T Room is now three years old and what still amazes me, is that we still have customers who haven’t discovered the delights that lie within. We amended our roadsign recently and have signposts directing you up to the building yet some people don’t make it inside to this treasure trove. From the exterior it may look like any old log cabin but the inside is very different.

So today I am going to offer you a virtual tour of what lies within.


The name of the building speaks for itself and when we say therapy where better to get some retail therapy as well as horticultural therapy.

As you can see bright and airy and painted with Farrow and Ball paints, a job that seemed to take forever and a day but the end results transformed the interior. In the early days there was certainly less items inside but our range of locally produced crafts and select giftware has increased. In summer the light streams in and with the double doors open and looking onto the gardens and filled with birdsong it certainly is a tranquil place. In winter the building still retains its cosy charm with the wood burning stove warming any visitor.`

Our gift range includes a range of scented soaps, candles and gifts, wall signs and other accessories for your home and garden.

The craft range includes handmade soy candle, jewellery, hand made cards, willow baskets amongst many other items.

The other element of the T room of course is that you get tea served in china, locally made delicious cake, Murphy’s ice cream on a hot day and as of next year hot soup and toasted sandwiches.

We have hosted children’s parties, provided talks to women’s groups and flower and gardening clubs, held our fantastic Santa Night, provided workshops, hosted art exhibitions, provided training courses as well as provide a place of sanctuary for our visitors.

So next time you visit be sure to make sure you come inside the T room.

Please note that The Secret Garden is no longer operating as a garden centre, we are now offering floristry services, wedding flowers, flowers for funerals and other occassions. We also host courses and other events in gardening and floral displays and Sarah is available to do talks for organisations and at events all over Munster.
