Blarney Castle & Gardens 2-for-1 entry

Get one free entry with one full-paying adult, with your Gardeners’ World Magazine 2-for-1 entry card. Valid at 392 gardens.

Danger, mystery and beauty combine in this diverse series of gardens. Enter the poison garden if you dare, to see some of the world’s most toxic plants, including mandrake and opium poppies. In the rock close, you’ll encounter ancient yews, giant-leaved gunnera, druidic stones and the magical wishing steps. There’s plenty more too, including a jungle, bog garden and woodland walks, not to mention the castle’s famous Blarney Stone.

Check before you travel

Before setting off check the garden’s website or call direct, as opening details can vary and one-off restrictions may apply.

We advise checking the garden’s own website or calling them direct to ensure the published details are accurate, as opening times and restrictions may vary.

Always take your 2 for 1 card with you

Some gardens have pre-booking systems in place – take your 2 for 1 card with you to validate your booking.

If a garden offers both pre-booking and walk-up options, we recommend booking prior to your visit to avoid disappointment should the garden be busy.

Please don’t make multiple pre-bookings or share your 2 for 1 card – card misuse will invalidate your discount claim at the garden.
