🌿And so we’re off – we’re delighted to share details of the 2024 Carlow Garden Festival!

Here’s a snapshot of last year’s event to get an idea of what you can expect.

The full programme can be viewed at: carlowgardentrail.com/festival-programme/ with handy booking links.

This year we have completely revamped the site and hope you find it easy to follow.

Established since 2002, Carlow’s Garden Festival is delivered through interactive, themed workshops and guided tours in private, public and community gardens, garden centres and forest parks throughout the county and in neighbouring Burtown House, Patthana Gardens and Shankill Castle. In the intervening twenty one years over 400 talks and workshops have been delivered by 300 plus key experts in UK and Irish gardening and environmental circles.

These gardening experts have shared their passion, knowledge, and insights, enriching the gardening community, both beginner and advanced, and inspiring generations to cultivate their green spaces with care and creativity. In addition to sharing their expertise, our gardening experts have explored the latest trends, keeping audiences abreast of what's happening in the ever-evolving world of gardening.

We’ve also introduced an FAQ section to answer any queries you may have: carlowgardentrail.com/festival/festival-faqs/
Please remember that we are always at the end of a phone line should you experience any difficulties in reserving tickets or have a query that is not addressed within the FAQ section.

Look forward to having you with us in this nine-day dedicated festival of gardening fun and inspiration!
