Set in the beautiful garden county of Wicklow, the Garden Exhibition centre has established itself in Ireland as the leading exponent of new and classical trends in garden design. 20 separate gardens designed by leading designers are on display and incorporate a wide variety of design ideas as well as plants, trees and shrubs. Many gardens include water features, pergolas, mirrors, unusual furniture, sculptures and stone walls to stimulate your creative imagination. You can sit or stroll and relax and enjoy the scent and sounds of these wonderfully peaceful gardens.
The exhibition contains some 15000 different plants, so if you want ideas for your garden or back yard then take a stroll down to see us. You can enjoy a meal or morning coffee or afternoon tea in the Beech tree cafe, look at what our gift shop has to offer, as well as Gardenworld and the exhibits all round, there is always something new on offer. The Exhibition centre has become one of the most popular places to visit in Co Wicklow.
The National Garden Exhibition Centre here in Kilquade, County Wicklow is a gardeners idea of pure heaven. With over 15,000 different plants spread over 20 separate gardens you could spend as little or as long as you like here, such is the greatness of this, one of Ireland's many hidden gems. The entrance fee is only a small nominal charge really, on par with other Irish attractions it really is great value for money. Although I am not really a garden lover, in fact I would go as far as to say I don't have green fingers whatsoever, but I do have a love for visiting garden centres, but this place is in a class of its own! The exhibition centre also has a really good cafe called the Beech Tree, so you don't have to worry at all about lunch, the cafe has all tastes and appetites catered for.
Byrne & Woods in Roundwood, is a delightful gastro pub nestled in the heart of this picturesque region. Its prime location near Wicklow's attractions makes it a perfect pitstop for any time of day. The ambiance is cozy and inviting, with a charming Irish pub feel that instantly puts you at ease.
