I am so annoyed with myself that I have never visited Altamont Gardens before. Fantastic walled garden in full bloom and the main garden walk was lovely. Children loved the bog garden and ice age glen. Lovely tea garden. Picnic area available and toilets were clean. Great day out for €2 (parking). Can't wait to return and watch the gardens change through the seasons.

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.
