Blarney Castle Gardens boasts, among other attractions, one of the few Poison Gardens in Ireland.
With a fine collection of Azaleas and Rhododendrons and carpets of bulbs in springtime, followed by herbaceous borders and rose beds this garden offers a splendid display of colour and structure. In Autumn the arboretum is an attraction. Winter is traditionally the quiet time of year with the lake and woodlands providing year-round interest.

We organise garden visits and garden-orientated tours in Ireland and overseas. We have a winter lecture programme, practical gardening workshops in Spring and Summer, a list of Partner Gardens, the RHSI Journal published three times a year, the RHSI restoration of the walled garden at Russborough as our charity focus and an exciting Bicentenary Seminar planned for the RDS in September 2016. RHSI members have priority booking privileges but many events are also open to other interested gardeners.
