Join me for a superlative tour of the Emerald Isle to explore the best gardens Ireland has to offer. We’ll visit large, historical estates and important botanical gardens as well as intimate and experimental private gardens with all the personality of their colourful owners. You’ll have the opportunity to meet and be toured by head gardeners and garden personalities. You’ll discover a great diversity of temperate and subtropical plants and a variety of gardening styles from historical to modern. You’ll also take in beautiful cities, quaint towns, and the gorgeous Irish countryside and experience a little of the local culture along the way.
