Loughcrew Gardens

Loughcrew Gardens and Estate in Oldcastle, Co. Meath, an RHSI Partner Garden have asked the Society to spread the word to our members and their friends who might be interested in becoming a volunteer or getting together to form a group of volunteers in this magnificent garden in preparation for the busy Spring and Summer season.  No specific experience is required, just a love of gardening and the ability to use a spade!  
If you are willing to offer some of your time, please contact Loughcrew directly to make your own arrangements, contact details below:-

The gardens are a breathtaking spectacle from 17th and 19th century landscape and pleasure gardens.
The central area of approximately six acres includes a lime avenue, extensive lawns and terraces, a magnificent herbaceous border and a physic border. The result of years of restoration can be seen in this stunning garden comprising a magnificent yew walk, a walled garden, a canal and a parterre. There are plenty of things to see at Loughcrew, both historical and horticultural, so allow plenty of time for your visit.

Take a guided tour, stroll the lake walk around Lough Crew and visit The Lime Tree café and gift shop. Phone: 049 854 1356. E:
