In a career spanning more than 40 years, designer Arthur Shackleton has nurtured many of Ireland’s botanical gems including Ashford, Dromoland and Glin Castles, Lyons Demesne, Coolmore Stud, Airfield House in Dundrum and Butler House in Kilkenny as well as his own wonderful garden, Fruit Lawn in Abbeyleix, County Laois.

In 1999, Arthur transformed two derelict farm buildings and their accompanying land outside Abbeyleix, Co. Laois, into his own garden. Arthur shares Fruitlawn with artist Carol Booth and grows in the garden a wide selection of plants originally from his father, David Shackleton’s garden at Beech Park in Clonsilla. It has been called “enchanting” for its “billowing borders and quiet corners” by The Irish Garden Magazine, and has received visitors from around the world.

The Carlow Garden Festival is supported by Carlow County Council under the Festival and Events Scheme and the URBACT Ru:Rban programme.
