Welcome to the Wexford Garden Trail. We are delighted you have chosen to visit our county, located in what is traditionally known as the Sunny South East. The largest of the province of Leinster’s 12 counties and bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the South and to the east by the Irish Sea. The River Barrow forms its western boundary; the Blackstairs Mountains form part of the boundary to the north, as do the southern edges of the Wicklow Mountains. Only an hour’s drive from Dublin, it is also home to the busy port of Rosslare.
Our gardens reflect both the history and the diversity of the county and its landscape. Some of our gardens were originally laid out in the 18th and 19th century while others were begun just 10 years ago. Our larger public gardens provide an ideal outing for all the family, our smaller private gardens will give you not only an enjoyable and relaxing afternoon, they will also introduce you to the large range of plants which we can grow in this temperate region. Our trail includes Specialist Nurseries for the more unusual plants and, spread through the county, award winning Garden Centres who will provide for all your gardens needs.
The owners of all of our garden locations on our trail will be happy to welcome and assist you with any information you require to enjoy your visit to Co. Wexford.
