National Botanic Gardens, Kilmacurragh

Rhododendron Week, 12 – 18 April 2021.  An online event brought to you by the National Botanic Gardens, Kilmacurragh and the Office of Public Works.

The significance of these venerable trees is down to the site’s long association with the National Botanic Gardens at Glasnevin. Learn more about the remarkable plant collections at Kilmacurragh during this week long online event, where we have prepared a series of video-stories and live talks begining on the 12th April 2021.
