This week, pop up gardens are appearing across Dublin to showcase just a handful of the stunning stately gardens that are scattered across Ireland’s Ancient East just waiting to be explored this spring.
Iconic locations, including the famous Molly Malone Statue will become a visual floral feast, displaying the gardens of Huntington Castle & Gardens, Co. Carlow. The Japanese Gardens at The Irish National Stud will be crossing over the busy Barnardo’s Square near Temple Bar to bring a new cultural experience to the busy hipster enclave.
Busy city commuters will be stopped in their tracks at Heuston Station as the train station platforms are exchanged for the apple orchards of Emo Court House, Co. Laois. Birr Castle, Gardens & Science Centre, Co. Offaly, will be replicating its own dramatic show outside the mother of drama, The Gaiety Theatre on South Kings Street. Georgian Dublin will come alive on Merrion Square at fashion house, Louise Kennedy, as a living embodiment of the beautiful Italian Gardens at Powerscourt Estate, House & Gardens transcend vertically over the iconic doorway.
