Active Retired

A warm engaging experience for the Active Retired

Brigit’s Garden is celebrating its 18th year as a not-for-profit focusing on education, sustainability and heritage. We have four gardens representing the Celtic festivals with special dedication to Brigit, Irish goddess and saint. We are conveniently located 25 minutes from Galway City at the gateway to Connemara. We would love to welcome your Active Retired Group.

We are pleased to offer:

Celtic Gardens Group Tour

Premium tour 1: The essence of herbs

We finish the tour with a refreshing treat of delicious herbal infusions for you to try. One and a quarter hours, €10 per person.

Garden Café

We are very proud of our Garden Café which is Georgina Campbell and Bridgestone recommended. If you fancy hot lunches, hearty soups, fresh scones, and mouth-watering cakes made in-house, our team would be delighted to serve you. 

Our chefs use fresh ingredients, local where possible, and always of the highest quality. What could be nicer than a delicious lunch in our bright and light-filled café which overlooks the Garden?

If this sounds good, we would love to hear from you
