To ensure every season is reflected in our estate, Airfield gardens underwent a massive redesign project in 2014, with the help of renowned plantsman Jimi Blake and designers Lady Arabella Lennox Boyd and Dermot Foley. The colour and life you see in the gardens today are the result of the hard work and imagination of our Head Gardener Colm O'Driscoll and his team who have since put their stamp on the gardens as they continue to evolve.
The gardens in Airfield are just over six acres in size and composed of diverse spaces ranging from an ornamental walled garden, shade gardens and glasshouse spaces, to an extensive organic certified fruit, vegetable and edible flower garden. The temperate climate of south Dublin accommodates a large variety of plants to be grown on site which provides year-round interest to any visitor. The gardens are managed organically which helps contribute to a vibrant biodiverse green space.
We’re happy to organise garden tours for groups of 10 or more of our green-fingered friends. They’re led by our resident horticulturalists who share their best advice, tips and tricks, and talk about how the gardens at Airfield have evolved over the years. If you’ve a specialist garden interest group in mind, then pop us a note and we’ll back in touch as soon as we can.
