Sculpture in the Parkland - Large Show Garden Bloom 2016


Returning to Bloom for a third time, the “Garden of Sculptures” is an exciting must-see for design enthusiasts. The garden is designed to function as an outdoor sculpture gallery for young and old to enjoy.

Situated away from the other show gardens, visitors are welcome to walk through this space to experience and interact with the art. The sculpture garden will showcase pieces by some of Ireland’s leading Irish artists and designers, with everything from a 5ft blue bunny to a bog oak-carved Children of Lir Swan sculpture on display. The design emphasises that placing sculpture in a garden, whether it is small or large, can enhance the space and offer enjoyment all year round.
