Donegal Garden Trail comprises of 22 private and publicly owned gardens open for visitors at differing times during the gardening season. Open days and times are listed with each garden but many owners are happy to open outside of these times, but please do phone ahead to make sure, giving as much notice as possible.

Founded in 2006 and first opening our gates in summer 2007, we are an association of public and private gardens which has a very committed and enthusiastic membership. Many private gardens proudly collect donations for charities.

Our primary aim is to promote garden visiting as a collective effort in County Donegal, encouraging garden visiting as an educational and leisure activity.

We have an inclusive approach, not rating or judging our gardens as such. Two of our members will visit a new prospective garden and determine two criteria: is the garden safe and is there sufficient horticultural interest.

2017 marks a momentous year for Donegal … global publication “National Geographic” has named our county “The Coolest Place on the Planet” to visit.
