The Rare and Special Plant Fair

The Rare and Special Plant Fair was established in 2001 with the assistance of BordBia, to ensure that the gardening public has an opportunity to purchase rare and difficult to source plants, while at the same time visit a garden of note that they may not otherwise visit.

Airfield Estate, Dundrum, Dublin 14 will play host to The Rare & Special Plant Fair on Sunday 10th May 2015, with over forty specialist nurseries and associated businesses on site to offer a vast selection of rare and unusual plants, advice on care and planting and much more.

Airfield Estate is Ireland's largest urban farm and food gardens experience designed to inspire people to reconnect with food and the land it comes from.
The 38 acre estate includes a working farm and dairy, food gardens and food production tunnels that supply the destination restaurant, Overends, ornamental gardens, a state of the art interactive heritage centre, a display garage for the Rolls Royce and vintage cars, and educational facilities.

Airfield Estate is a charitable organisation established by Letitia and Naomi Overend in 1974 as a place of recreation and education.

It is a place where visitors can reflect, be replenished and celebrate the connection between people and nature through the farm, gardens and natural environment.
It has a captivating annual schedule of fun filled family events celebrating food, farming and the natural world through performances, tours, storytelling and workshops.
It also hosts a range of schools and educational programmes specially designed for everyone from pre-schoolers through to senior school students.

Activities are self-funded so all entrance fees help Airfield Estate to live on as a resource for visitors' enjoyment today, and for future generations.

Airfield Estate operating hours are from 9.30am to 5pm (last admissions 4pm). Daily tours are available from 10am with egg collection, followed by milking in the farmyard at 10.30am and house, gardens and farm tours from 11.30am. www.airfield.ie
