Delta Sensory Gardens, Carlow

4.7
A combination of both formal and informal landscapes allow visitors to meander round at will, watch splashing fountains and waterfalls, enjoy herbs and perfumed plants, many in raised beds (suitable for access by wheelchair), watch fish, reflect on sculptures, or simply sit around and enjoy flowers and foliage.



The gardens include a water and woodland garden, a sculpture garden, a musical garden and a formal rose garden amongst others. Delta Sensory Gardens are Carlow’s best-kept secret and an oasis of peace, beauty and tranquillity for all to enjoy.

  • The gardens here are just beautiful. If you want to spend some time in a tranquil peaceful place in Carlow town come here. There is also a fantastic cafe as well.
  • We were lucky enough to have our wedding photos shot there recently from out booking in the Talbot Hotel. Beautiful gardens that are kept in great condition. Had visited previously and tried the café which had lovely food and very nice staff.
  • Oh my God what's not to like? So many different gardens. Wheelchair easy peasy. My favourite garden is the lost child. Colin loves the O Brien garden. There's a body of water with bridges and a mirror at the end. We have used the arbor/shelter and brought a picnic and Colin has sketched a part of the garden. The restaurant is gorgeous, decent coffee, cakes and sambos. The kids will love giant jenga, chess, draughts, connect 4. Here, we have had some true fights over games there
  • Beautiful and tranquil. Friendly staff. Lovely cafe.
  • Fabulous sensory gardens designed for autistic people but beautiful for everyone. Would make a great backdrop for formal wedding photos.
