Wexford Garden Trail

A group of 21 garden attractions, consisting of private gardens, small specialist nurseries, an arboretum and public garden and two family owned garden centres – all situated in the sunny south east of Ireland.

Wexford Local Development (WLD) has been developing a series of tourism trails and networks across County Wexford, through the Rural Development Programme 2007-2013. This has enabled a strategic development of the tourism sector and the Garden Trail was the first to be formed in conjunction with Wexford County Council and Fáilte Ireland in April 2012.

Our gardens reflect the history and diversity of the county and its landscape. Some of the gardens were originally laid out in the 18th and 19th centuries while others were begun just 10 years ago. Our larger public gardens provide an ideal outing for all the family, and our smaller private gardens will give you not only an enjoyable and relaxing day, they will also introduce you to the large range of plants which we can grow in this temperate region. Our trail includes specialist nurseries for the more unusual plants and, spread throughout the county, award winning garden centres who will provide for all your garden needs.

The owners of all the garden locations on our trail will be happy to welcome you and to assist you with any information you require to enjoy your visit to County Wexford.
