UGS Events - Open Gardens

Open gardens offer a rare opportunity to explore the secrets of hidden and private gardens not usually open to the public and the Ulster Gardens Scheme is bringing together a spectacular array for summer 2018.

Whether you’re a keen gardener eager for some helpful tips, or you simply enjoy the splendour and beauty of unusual plants, there will be something for everyone to enjoy in charming surroundings.

While you’re there browse the plant stalls for that special plant or relax with a cup of tea.

Admission £4

All funds raised help support National Trust gardens in Northern Ireland

This serene five-acre country garden was featured in BBC’s ‘Greatest Gardens’ with Helen Dillon and Diarmuid Gavin in 2015. Woodland plantings of beech, oak, spruce and silver birch are linked by stone paths, approximately half-a-mile in total, with seating at points of special interest.
