You’re Welcome to Visit our Gardens

Home to a rich and fertile landscape, Laois has always been a garden-go-to destination. And today, green-fingered enthusiasts from all over the world flock to our county for unique garden tours, advice, and inspiration. Our plantation history recounts the stories of many famous garden architects of yesteryear who took advantage of our natural heritage to create visions of stunning serenity, precision, and beauty.

Attracting visitors all year round, these established works-of-art are now complemented by garden creations by some of Ireland’s leading contemporary designers. Be inspired by both maestros from a golden era of garden design, and our modern landscape architects who now build a legacy for the next generation. More information in our Garden Brochure here
