The River Slaney flows through the beautiful nineteenth century estate of Newtownbarry House. The Blackstairs Mountains are a spectacular background to woodland walks. A rose garden designed by Frances & Ian Mc Donald includes herbaceous and shrub beds full of colour and scent all year.
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.
