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.
Christopher is a freelance architectural historian who gardens both in Ireland – Thomastown – and in the Cotswolds and has recently been involved in the restoration of Doneraile Court in Co. Cork.
In this talk, Christopher – a truly excellent speaker – explores the historic efforts to achieve the perfect garden, the perfect haven we all seek. I have attended this talk and can assure readers that it is one of the most interesting, entertaining and informative talks I have had the pleasure to hear in many years. It is one not to be missed!
