Over a hundred events take place at our Arboretum stores every year, so make sure and don’t miss out. With events to cover a wide variety of topics we have something on offer for everyone. Events like our family fun days, mad hatter’s tea party and Little Seeds workshops are perfect to keep the kids entertained and educated also. For the adults we have courses for BBQ cooking, Yoga and wellness, Garden and Plants seminars and much more. Our annual events at Christmas and Halloween are always a huge hit with the kids.

Our special and ever popular Santa events return again for 2022, with Santa’s Grotto in Arboretum Kilquade and An Evening with Santa in our Carlow store. Along with these fantastic events, we will have our live reindeer will return again for everyone to come and visit for free. Keep a eye out as tickets will go on sale in September and have sold out by end of October for the last few years, so get in quick!
Join us in the fresh air at Arboretum Kilquade or Leighlinbridge and learn how to cook mouth-watering food on a Weber barbecue under the expert eye of Certified-by-Weber chef Mark Doe.
