Johnstown Garden Centre

A Short History

John and Elsie Clarke founded Johnstown Garden Centre in August 1974, on a greenfield site in the quaint Norman village of Johnstown, Naas, Co. Kildare in Ireland.

The company expanded rapidly and in 1980, sons Jim and Sean joined the firm and today manage the site jointly, together with 4 of the next generation of the family, Paul, Barry, Emma and Holly and our large dedicated staff.

John and Elsie are taking it a bit easier now both enjoying very good health, as we now celebrate over 45 years in Business.

The Centre has continued to expand, most recently in 2013 and 2014 and now comprises Ireland’s largest plant selection and Garden Store in a bright airy modern shopping environment, a 200 seat café and Café Gardens and very extensive car and coach parking. The entire Garden Centre is fully wheelchair accessible, with special parking bays and toilet facilities

Our aim has always been to be truly a Gardeners’ Garden Centre and now in addition, we can also offer an extensive range of other lines like Outdoor Clothing, Gourmet Foods, Kitchen and Household, and unusual Gift items.

Our website has one of the largest plant ranges available anywhere, all from the very top quality growers in Europe. We accept Visa or Mastercard cards in store or online and you can also pay online with Paypal if you wish. Nationwide delivery is available in Ireland for just €4.75 for items ordered online.

The Centre is a real destination Centre in the area, a meeting place and a relaxing environment in which to spend some time with family, friends or just some quiet time to relax.

Over 600,000 people visited us in Johnstown last year.
