Oldcastle, Co. Meath
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 Creeve and visit The Lime Tree café and gift shop.

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.
