If your dad just loves wandering about pristine clipped hedges and acres of wildflowers, then it’s a trip to one of Kildare’s noted gardens for him this Sunday.

The Japanese Gardens are a must see, as is Burtown House in Athy which features enviable shrubberies, a rock garden, a sundial garden and a walled organic vegetable garden that has been in continuous production for over 150 years.
