The steep terraced layout with granite rockeries is planted with over 2,000 specimen trees and plant species and has a centralised watering system, with a feature pond to the side. The rocky outcrop is now home to rhododendrons, orchids from Asia and many different varieties of maple and fern to name a few.

The four yacht clubs at Dun Laoghaire Harbour with its extensive marina will be of interest to the marine and sailing enthusiasts.
