Teagasc College of Amenity Horticulture

The College of Amenity Horticulture is located at the National Botanic Gardens of Ireland,  Dublin.  Having our college located in the National Botanic Gardens provides students with a unique training opportunity. Our aim is to train students for employment in the amenity horticulture industry. Currently we are providing training for 300 students between all our courses. There is a balance of both school leavers and mature participants among the students.

While on courses students are trained in the theory and practice of horticulture and get an opportunity to work in a practical way alongside skilled horticulturalists as part of their training.  Graduates of our courses contribute in many sectors of the horticulture industry, such as, landscape design and construction, garden centres, parks, estate gardens, grounds maintenance and greenkeeping. All aspects of Horticulture are being studied on our programmes from Level 5 to Level 7.
