We have a great selection of Partner Gardens for you to visit this summer in Co Wexford- our sunny South East!
Full information on each garden is on the Partner Garden section of the RHSI website……..
In the north of the county, two miles from Courtown Harbour is Glenavon Japanese
Garden. Centred around a wonderfully recreated Japanese pavilion, the garden features oriental styled planting, water gardens, little bridges, stone lanterns and sculptures. Further south at Clonroche is the lovely 2.5 acre cottage style Coolaught Garden surrounding a beautiful old farmhouse, The garden is divided into several areas with a great variety of planting combinations and a woodland area with many rare and unusual trees. A bonus- Coolaught has its own well stocked plant nursery!
Just south of Wexford town is Johnstown Castle Estate, Museum and Gardens. Something for everyone here with ongoing restoration and development of the extensive 4 acre ornamental gardens and glasshouses, walks around the picturesque lake and a visit tothe Irish agricultural Museum.
In south Co Wexford, heading towards Waterford is Colclough Walled Garden. Next to Tintern Abbey, this beautiful 2.5 acre Georgian garden with its curved corners has been restored over the past 12 years and boasts a river with 5 bridges running through it. At Great Island, some 10km further on towards New Ross, is Kilmokea Country Manor and Gardens. This handsome former Georgian Rectory is surrounded by romantic old fashioned
flower gardens with topiary and clipped hedges and productive kitchen gardens and woodland areas. These gardens hold an Irish Heritage Garden certificate.
It is essential that you check with each garden directly before you visit. Either by phone/email or their own website. Several are strictly by appointment only. This contact information plus postcode directions are on the Partner Garden section of the RHSI website.
