Irish Sky Garden Crater

Best of Skibbereen, Cork, Ireland



Crater garden scenery in Cork Ireland

In 1992 the Irish Sky Garden opened at the Liss Ard Estate, Skibbereen, County Cork, Ireland. The giant earth and stoneworks has a crater at its center. A visitor enters through a doorway in the perimeter of the rim, walks through a passage, climbs stairs to enter, then lies on the central plinth and looks upwards to experience the sky framed by the rim of the crater.

“The most important thing is that inside turns into outside and the other way around, in the sense that relationships between the Irish landscape and sky changes.” - James Turrell
