The association with the transcendent immanence of Yeats’ lines is perfectly in keeping with the feelings evoked by this singular place, for Innisfree is a garden of richly interwoven vistas and episodic energies, wreathed in a tranquil yet exciting atmosphere which stays fresh in the mind for many years.
— Tim Richardson, Great Gardens of America (2009)
Innisfree welcomes groups in the garden and can accommodate buses of any size. Groups may schedule a private guided tour given by our landscape curator or walk through the garden on their own. Both options take about 1.5 hours, and groups of 12 or more must make reservations. Available to groups of 12 to 50 (or smaller groups willing to pay the minimum guided tour fee of $180), the in-depth guided tours tell the story of Innisfree: the extraordinary garden, the people who created it, and the nonprofit that stewards this unique resource. Guided tours are $15 per person and include admission to the garden. Visits outside of regular hours are possible, but additional fees will apply. To check dates and make reservations, please contact Innisfree via email.
You may pay in advance after the tour reservation has been confirmed in writing ($15 per person for groups of 12 or more, or a flat fee of $180 for smaller groups).
