National Garden Exhibition Centre

The National Garden Exhibition Centre in Wicklow, now in its second decade, has established itself in Ireland as the leading exponent of new and classical trends in garden design.

One of the most exciting aspects of gardening is how seasonal it is, and our designer gardens are designed to produce points of interest andnew flushes of colour right through the seasons. There is something to be seen and enjoyed at any time of the year.

Twenty 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, unusual furniture, pergolas, mirrors and sculptures to stimulate your creative imagination. Sit or stroll and relax and enjoy the scent and sounds of these wonderfully peaceful gardens.

The Pagoda Tea Rooms are under new management and a warm welcome is assured to one and all. Come in for a cup of tea or coffee, or hot chocolate if that is your thing, have a delicious cake or scone, stay for a lunch hot or cold, whatever takes your fancy. And if you have any query concerning plants, design, or paving materials our staff are only too happy to discuss your requirements and queries with you.


There is ample free car and coach parking at the National Garden Exhibition Centre.

Dogs are not permitted in the exhibition gardens.
