This event is cancelled due to Coronavirus. Apologies for the inconvenience. Please check back here for updates.

Join one of our knowledgeable guides for a tour of the National Botanic Gardens of Ireland, Kilmacurragh, that takes you from the seventeenth century, when Saint Mochorog established the abbey, right up to the present day. Hear the fascinating stories of various members of the Acton family who lived in the house, and discover the magnificent and exotic plant specimens in our collection.

Guided tours are twice daily (12 noon and 3pm) during weekends in March and every day from April onwards until mid-October. Meet your guide and the rest of the group in the car park at these times. The tour takes about an hour. Seasonal and themed special guided tours also take place during the year. These include guided tours during National Tree Day in October, special Rhododendron Walks in March, and events for Heritage Week. Check our calendar for updates.

The guiding team at Kilmacurragh is delighted to offer free school tours and to welcome private groups (advance booking essential). For school and group bookings or enquiries, please contact us.
