    It's one of our favorite places to go for a day out with kids. Lots of paths for walks and great areas for picnics and resting. Spring and early summer are perfect time to visit the gardens and see them in full bloom. However with good weather, Congreve Gardens are welcoming in every season (as long as it's open). Small cafe is a nice addition for tired walkers and kids would love ice cream and juice after long day spent in the nature.

    This is one of the best gardens in Ireland, some times of the year are better than others in terms of floral displays but it's always worth a look and if you're into trees then there's a Lot going on there as well with many foreign species growing. A certain amount of plants are sold in the courtyard as well and the cafe has nice cakes and soup/sandwich options if you want to pass the time that way. One of the jewels in the crown of Waterford and Ireland. Allow at least 2 hours to wander the walled gardens and beyond

    Absolutely wonderful. This is a perfect place for getting away from it all and getting food for the soul. Right now the peonies are spectacular.

Where to stay in Waterford

There aren't an overwhelming number of places to stay in the city center of Waterford, so consider looking into options in the surrounding neighborhoods. There are a few hotels, smaller lodgings, and a hostel in the heart of the city--the Norman quarter. However, as you venture outside the city center you'll find many traditional bed and breakfasts, cottage-style guesthouses, and family-owned accommodations. The city is easy to get around, so if you stay in a more commercial area, you will still be able to experience the magic of its medieval streets and fortifications.
