Record Numbers Flock to Antrim Castle Gardens for Garden Show Ireland

08 May 2017

Record numbers flocked to Antrim Castle Gardens from Fri 5 – Sun 7 May for Allianz Garden Show Ireland. The glorious sunshine, fabulous flowers, great music and culinary delights made Garden Show Ireland the place to be seen.

Celebrity Gardener Joe Swift was a big hit with the crowds on Friday giving out tips on how to achieve your dream garden on a budget, whilst Chef Paula McIntyre was on hand all weekend giving expert advice on Picnics and Afternoon Tea BBQ’s.

Antrim Castle Gardens were awash with colour as an array of show gardens from the Team Challenge and School Garden challenge were on display as well as market stalls of arts & crafts, plants and flowers galore.

The Festival of Flowers, Food and Fun was an ideal day out for families. Crazy Golf, Gardening Workshops, Face Painting, Archery, Kite Workshops and a Fairy Tree Garden were just a few of the treats for children. The grownups relaxed to the music of one of the many bands and sampled some of the great food on offer as they basked in the sunshine in the beautiful surroundings of Antrim Castle Gardens.
