The Ardilaun Hotel scoops First Prize for “Best Hotel Garden” in the Galway City Tidy Towns Awards

We are delighted to win “Best Hotel Garden” once again in the Public and Commercial buildings category of the Galway City and Tidy Towns and Garden Competition for 2019, just announced recently.

The Ardilaun Hotel comes out tops once again and for the past sixteen years consecutively - every year since 2003 and for good reason. The hotel’s passionate gardener of thirty years Leo O’ Brien has led the team to their success with his green fingered touch. The carefully tended gardens at The Ardilaun portray a woodland feel from the front gate, and down the avenue right through to the lovely walkways, terrace area, and winding paths to the rear of the hotel - along with a wide variety of perennials and flowering plants on display throughout the grounds.

There is also a newly developed Ardilaun Celebration Garden at the rear carefully designed by award winning Anne Byrne Garden Design and landscaping was beautifully completed by Galway’s own Radharc Landscaping.

Managing Director John Ryan said, ‘we are delighted to have won this prestigious award again this year and this achievement is testament to Leo and Austin’s hard work and dedication throughout the years in making our gardens and grounds look so well, and they take immense pride and interest in them. We are proud of our gardens, especially when in full bloom, and they make a beautiful backdrop for many family occasions held at The Ardilaun including weddings, anniversary parties, birthdays and barbeques, and many guests have very happy memories of these events for years to come”.
