Found in Leighlinbridge, County Carlow, The Millennium Garden consists of seven small gardens, each with its own theme represented by trees, shrubs and stones. Together, the gardens represent the story of life.

The Leighlinbridge district is rich in history, favoured with fertile land and enhanced by the River Barrow which meanders slowly through the County Carlow village.
The foundation for its beauty lies directly with the residents, who demonstrate a sense of pride and work tirelessly to preserve and enhance this unique area. This pride is evident by a range of gardens, built and designed by the local community to commemorate various aspects of village life over the years.
The Millennium Garden consists of seven small, individual gardens, each with its own theme represented by trees, shrubs and stones. Using materials indigenous to the local area, the garden tells the story of life through a series of themes, including peace and tranquillity, happiness, friendship, reconciliation, hope, harmony and eternity.
Facilities in Leighlinbridge include the award-winning Arboretum Lifestyle & Garden Centre, a restaurant, hotel, pubs, castle, historic buildings, angling, walking routes and picnic site.
