Home : Environment : Allotments



Do you want to grow your own vegetables but don’t have a garden big enough? Or live in an apartment with no access to a garden at all? An allotment may be the answer for you. An allotment is basically a small piece of land that is rented to an individual to grow vegetables, fruit and other plants.

 Kildare County Council provides allotments adjacent to the Wonderful Barn in Leixlip off the R408 Celbridge Road. for more information go to Wonderful Barn Allotments

In general, allotment land is normally rotavated once a year by the landowner, water is supplied and manure may also be available locally. Not only is it great to grow your own fruit and vegetables, but you can swap ideas and seeds with your allotment neighbours too. Some allotments will even allow you to erect a polytunnel. The Council is aware of the following commercial allotments that may have spaces available, do check prices as they may not all charge the same:

 

If you are aware of any other allotments in the county (or in bordering areas) please let us know and we will include them on this list.
