Members are eligible to attend events in any part of Ireland, so don’t limit your browsing to your own location. The categorisation by geographic region is for administration and organisational purposes only.
Non-members are very welcome at our events though there will be a charge for insurance purposes. Do come along and join us and, perhaps, become a member. There will be events which will be restricted to members only – perhaps because of the size of the garden and the need to restrict numbers or because this is the wish of the garden owner – and, on these occasions, unfortunately, we cannot accommodate non-members.
We occasionally list events of other groups in the ‘Other Events’ category, generally for groups we regularly work with. These are not part of the official IGPS programme but may be of interest to members.
A tour of Altamont Gardens with Head Gardener, Paul Cutler.
Be sure not to miss this exciting opportunity of a guided tour of the gardens with Head Gardener, Paul Cutler.
The gardens are home to an extensive collection of snowdrops as well as providing opportunities for beautiful walks around the lake, through the woodland and, if conditions allow, down the glen, along the banks of the River Barrow and up again via the Hundred Steps.
