Dublin Garden Group - Members


The Dillon Garden, 45 Sandford Road, Ranalagh, Dublin 6.
The Dillon Garden is deservedly one of the most revisited of Irish gardens. It isn’t just the wonderful parade of plants unfolding through the seasons in this stunning garden that draws visitors back again and again.

Carysfort Lodge
, 49 Carysfort Avenue, Blackrock, Co. Dublin
This pretty 1890s lodge and its sunny, square back garden were rescued from a dreadful fate as the car park for a nearby pub.

Knockrose Garden, The Scalp, Kilternan, Dublin 18.
A garden packed with cottage garden plants, shrubs and trees interspersed with areas of lawn, a vegetable plot and secluded seating.


Corke Lodge, Woodbrook, Bray, Co. Wicklow.
A garden punctuated by a collection of architectural follies salvaged from the demolition of Glendalough House


Warble bank, Newtownmountkennedy, Co. Wicklow.
One of the most fortuitous things you could wish for in a garden is a mature setting combined with generations of gardeners. Warble Bank is blessed with both.

Primrose Hill, Primrose Lane, Lucan, Co. Dublin.
Primrose Hill is a most endearing garden and the way it is hidden away down a laneway in the middle of Lucan gives a pleasing sense of discovery.

Mount Usher Gardens, Ashford, Co. Wicklow.
Magnificent gardens in the Robinsonian manner with a river as the central feature.

Rathmichael Lodge, Ballybride Road, Shankill, Co. Dublin.
Rathmichael Lodge is one of those gardens that wins an “oh!” of pleasure when they first burst into the field of vision.

Knockmore, Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow.
Below a small Palladian house looking out to Dublin Bay, lie steep stone terraces, built in the nineteenth century.

Carmel Duignan's Garden, 21 Library Road, Shankill, Co. Dublin.
Medium sized suburban garden with an impressive collection of rare and tender plants.

Hunting Brook, Lamb Hill, Tinode, Blessington, Co. Wicklow.
Large garden with contemporary borders and wooded garden in mature woodland setting

June Blake's Garden & Nursery, Tinode, Blessington, Co. Wicklow.
June Blake’s Garden and Nursery is a plantaholic’s dream and the fact that it is just minutes away from her brother Jimi’s garden at Hunting Brook creates a double attraction.
