We visited the Gardens just 10 days ago.We were short on time & needed a few hours in the fresh air.This place is a hidden gem.The array of Shrubs, plants & flowers was sublime.I was so inspired I bought 2 plants on the way.Theres a splendid walk that takes you out to the River Slaney & it was pure majic...even my other half commented it was more like a part of France.The lake is full of Water Lilies (mental note to revisit when they are in bloom)The scents of flowers even this late in Summer was sheer bliss for this lapsed gardener...I started a new perennial border the next day!with my 2..Altamont beautiesThe Staff were friendly & informative regarding the plants & a real treat was the Coffee Veranda which is again surrounded by lots of blooms & Theres piped music..A lil bit weddingly but it would make a lovely Wedding venue too.

Absolutely beautiful gardens, make time for a visit, nice little cafe but great for a picnic too and garden centre on-site too. Well worth it with only a very small OPW fee for parking required which you will want to pay at the end of your visit for the upkeep of this great attraction.

Big and beautiful gardens, wide variety of plants and flowers, several paths to walk (you can cut short or take the long one). Nice cafe as well, which closes a bit earlier. The pond in the middle is a nice spot for pictures. Seen a peacock walking around as well.
There is possibility to buy some plants including flowers and fruit trees.
Definitely something to see.
Car park available, 2 euro per visit.
