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.
