The Enable Ireland Garden and Gift Store is located on Sandymount Avenue, nestled under a beautiful horse chestnut tree.

The garden centre began with a request from one adult with a disability using Enable Ireland services to start growing tomatoes. This sparked the interest of other adults using Enable Ireland services and the garden centre evolved over the years to become a horticultural training centre for adults with a disability and thriving garden centre and gift store open to the public.

Our gift store sells a range of craft and gift items including candles, lanterns, throws, hand creams and scarves. We also sell tools, seeds and garden equipment – everything you need to keep urban gardens in the heart of Dublin looking beautiful.

Bird food, bird feeders, chimes and a variety of pots and garden ornaments are all part of our range to complement your garden.

We are very aware of the needs of our customers, many of whom live in apartments or townhouses with limited gardening space. We now offer a balcony and small space design consultations where our fully qualified horticultural experts will meet with you and help you create an outdoor oasis in the heart of Dublin 4.

We stock a wide range of outdoor plants from bedding plants to trees. We specialize in putting together pots and baskets, our creative team can advise you what to buy and how to put it together or we can do it for you and deliver to your door.

We do a range of indoor plants and we are currently expanding our gift range to include more homewares and we are introducing new suppliers. We have a coffee area in the gift store and a lovely outdoor space where you can relax with a cuppa when the weather permits.

We support local business and buy from Irish growers where possible. We aim to provide good quality products at a competitive price supported by a professional and friendly service.

We have recently installed a compost heap and a wildlife camera to film our foxes at play while we’re away! We want to be a good neighbour and strive to work in harmony with Mother Nature and reduce any negative impact our business may have on the environment around us.

Our team includes adults from Enable Ireland services working alongside fully qualified horticulturalists. Adults from Enable Ireland services help with potting plants, arranging hanging baskets, deliveries, customer service and the general maintenance of our gorgeous garden centre.

Our fully qualified horticulturalists can advise customers on all aspects of indoor and outdoor gardening. We are very grateful to our two amazing volunteers and are always welcoming of new volunteers.

Why not drop in and see for yourself? Support a local business in your local community while also supporting services for children and adults with disabilities.

All profits made in the centre go back to supporting our disability services. We are a voluntary organization providing a range of therapy and support services to children and adults with disabilities.
