GARDGARDEN EXPEDITIONS

Leading Garden Lovers Abroad

IRISH GARDENS, GUINNESS & BLOOM!

 

Join Garden Expeditions for an enchanting journey from Dublin Airport to the Wicklow Mountains and the gardens of June and Jimmy Blake, then on to Mount Usher and Powerscourt Castle. We’ll talk some blarney in a Poison Garden and spend an afternoon on delightful Garinish Island. Killarney will be our home for two nights while we explore Muckross House & Gardens by jaunting car and the magical Ring of Kerry.

Then we’ll head to the mystical Burren, Caher Bridge Garden and the majestic Cliffs of Moher.

In Connemara, we'll visit Brigit’s Garden and Galway before finish our tour in grand style in Dublin and the International Bloom Flower Show! Generous quantities of traditional music, castles and Guinness included on this magical tour encompassing 8 days of emerald green beauty and that’s no blarney!
