The vision of the Irish Georgian Society is to conserve, protect and foster a keen interest and a respect for Ireland’s architectural heritage and decorative arts. These aims are achieved through its scholarly and conservation education programmes, through its support of conservation projects and planning issues, and vitally, through its members and their activities.

Summer Garden Party - Knockanree Gardens, Co. Wicklow


Posted by IGS

The 2017 Summer Garden Party (24 June) was kindly hosted by Harold Clarke at Knockanree Gardens, Avoca, Co. Wicklow. Members were given a tour of the gardens which were developed by Harold in 1995. The garden had many interesting features inspired by gardens around the globe. There are European and Indian sculptures, a Japanese Zen circle, a Chinese bridge and a French parterre. Members enjoyed canapes and refreshments by the parterre.

A sincere thank you to Harold Clarke for hosting the Irish Georgian Society and all our volunteers who assisted in making the party such a success!
