Here are some of our most commonly asked questions about memberships. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to get in touch, you can email: and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Can my partner/spouse visit Killruddery using my membership?

Your partner/spouse/a second adult can have a card on your membership. Only one such named person with a card issued to your account can visit Killruddery using your membership. Your membership is not transferable.

In order to avail of this second card you must provide proof of address to verify that the second adult lives in the same house hold. (We will not keep a copy of this proof, but the member of staff issuing the card will need to see it).


Do my children count as guests?

People over 4 years old count in your guest allowance. People under 4 years old are free once accompanied by an adult.

(We suggest if you are bringing extra guests, that you use your membership to cover the adults (€7.50) and pay the entrance fee for the kids (€2).


I am bringing some friends to Killruddery but we are not all going to be here at the same time. Can I leave their name at the desk?

The member must be present in order for the guests to be allowed in the garden. If you are already here, you will have to come and get them. If you are on the way, they will have to wait outside the garden for you to get here (or they can pay the regular entrance fee in). Unfortunately, our staff cannot manage guest lists at the door for your visitors, nor can we allow any visitors in the garden without the fee being paid in advance.

How do I get a Killruddery Membership?

You can purchase a membership online or at the Garden Entrance.

If you purchased online, please have your booking email on your phone (no need to print) and we will get your card issued. Please be aware that if your first visit is at a very busy time, you may be issued with a temporary card, and your card will be printed on your next visit.


Can I buy a membership as a gift?

Yes, you can do so online, and give the confirmation to the recipient or you can buy at the Entrance and we will issue a temporary card that you can give as a gift.

If you have a temporary card you must have it with you when you visit and when your permanent card is being issued.

Do Killruddery Members get discounts on events at Killruddery?

Killruddery members get discounts on a number of events in the Killruddery calendar and several of them are free to members (e.g. Frank Jesper's Gardener's Talks are free to members, and there is a 10% discount on tickets for our Easter Egg Hunt.) Some events, because of cost constraints or because they are being run by outside parties, are not subject to a discount. You can check our programme online for more information.


Do I need my card with me to visit?
