Altamont Gardens, Tullow

The mysterious and enchanting ambience at Altamont Gardens makes it unlike other gardens. Recognized as one of Ireland's finest, it combines formal and informal landscaping featuring some oaks over 500 years old and a giant redwood planted to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo. Also look for rare azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolias, wild bluebells, and snowdrops. There is something to catch the eye in any season, as different plants flourish here at different times. Have a picnic on the grass with treats supplied by the resident cafe. Put Altamont Gardens and other Tullow attractions into our Tullow online tour builder , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Great place for a nice walk loads to see. Opw have done a great job on the grounds. They have started work on the house so will be good to see it finished. Bathrooms are in good condition
  • Snowdrops and daffodils and little birds galore in the garden by the lake! A lovely tramp thru the woodland then down to the river and back up the 100 steps back to the sheep and the hare's hangout. House is finally being restored. Pay parking,no entrance fee and lively garden shop
  • Always the perfect place to bring visitors. Great for walks alone. Any time of the year. Great coffee shop there too and garden centre. Great for photography.
  • Altamont gardens in Co. Carlow spread over 16 hectares. It is known as the most romantic garden in Ireland and is often referred to as the jewel in Ireland whilst is still little known. It ranks in top 10 Irish gardens. Is a place apart with a wonderland of interconnecting gardens and riverside walks. Woodlands of incredible beauty and peacefulness.
  • Gorgeous gardens in Robinsonian style, with large pond, arboretum, bog garden, woodland/river walk, walled garden. Free apart from parking. Good plant shop and outdoor cafe in season.
