Gardens in Wexford

Wexford gardens reflect the history and diversity of the County and its landscape. Some of them were originally laid out in the 18th and 19th centuries other just a few years ago.

Our larger public gardens provide an ideal outing for all the family. Johnstown Castle gardens, the Colclough Walled Garden or the JFK Arboretum are great options for family fun.

 

The smaller private gardens offer a relaxing experience and the possibility to introduce you to a large range of plants. Kilmokea Garden, Wells House and Garden or the Marfield House and Garden are just a few to visit.
