COVID-19

Following the announcement from Taoiseach Leo Varadkar (12/03/20) regarding COVID-19 and as a result of what is unfolding before us we have made a decision to close to the public until March 30th

We apologies for the inconvenience however COVID-19 is bigger than all of us and the health and safety of our colleagues and visitors are of the upmost importance.   

You can keep up-to-date by following us on face book,   birrcastlegardens.   

Looking forward to looking back at this time and celebrating what we have to offer over the coming months.
