The 2019 Clew Bay Garden Trail
June 1 - July 28FREE
June 1 – July 28 all around Westport.
Nothing says summer like a garden in bloom, and Westport has a whole trail for green-fingered flower fans to thumb and sniff their way through. The nine plant-havens that make up the 2019 trail each offer something unique, with a different selection of gardens, open each weekend until Sunday, July 28. The gardens are incredibly varied – small to large, town to rural settings, neat to not-so-neat. Some contain unusual plants, others are certified organic, and others still are biodiversity focused. The most expansive garden to tour this year will be the newly restored Italianate gardens at Westport House with guided tours by head gardener Oisin Griffin on the 8th & 9th of June at 1 PM & 3 PM each day. Each picks a charity for donations, with most choosing the Mayo/Roscommon Hospice this year.
