About Our Club

Since its beginning in 2009, the Garden of Ireland Vintage Car Club has been about vintage classics of all makes and models, and the enjoyment of the sport.

We embrace individuals who share our interests, welcome the camaraderie and support the overall goals of the club. Affiliated with the IVVCC, we currently have in excess of 100 members and are very active, running events across the country, throughout the year. Our largest event annually is the Annual Garden of Ireland Run which takes place in September. This attracts vintage car enthusiasts from around the entire county and further afield.
