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. To visit Altamont Gardens on your holiday in Tullow, and find out what else Tullow has to offer, use our Tullow vacation planner.

  • I was here on a sunny day and it was beautiful. The whole experience is wonderful . It has the ruins of an old georgian house ( not in use ) a fab tea room indoor and out . A lovely garden centre and a variety of amazing walks . Well worth a visit . I'll be back .
  • Altamont Gardens are a pleasure to visit, at any time of the year. In summer the trees, shrubs and plants are at their most magnificent and the Corona North Commemorative Border is at it's luxuriant height. In winter, the underlying designs and structures of the garden are revealed and the frozen lake and the 'bare ruined choirs' of the trees are stunningly haunting and beautiful.
  • Precioso paseo. Cafetería entrañable rodeada de jardines magníficos y excelentemente cuidados. Visita imprescindible al lago y alrededores. Y para comprar plantas de todo tipo. Sorprendente!
