Festival

We are excited to announce The Wexford Garden Trail’s events planned to take place in July for the Wexford County Flower & Garden Festival. We are delighted to compliment The Co. Wexford Garden & Flower Club’s 50th Anniversary Celebration Show at The EPA, Johnston Castle on 1st – 2nd July with to the Wexford Garden Trail members offering interesting events at their own locations throughout the County from the evening of Sunday 2nd July. These events are taking place throughout the County and are a fabulous experience for budding and experienced gardeners to get practical tips from Garden Celebrities & Wexford Gardeners and Garden Centres. What makes this garden trail special is the unique range of large and small gardens & centres which are lovingly cared for, with ideas to take home, and a great selection of plants, shrubs and trees that grow here. Some of the best gardens and garden centres in the country are here and our website will give you an insight into the special places you can visit in Co. Wexford.
