A wonderful place, like discovering fairyland. Fantastic mushrooms in the garden too, but the most beautiful colours and plants by a shady lake in the summer glow. The house was mysterious & deserted.

Visited Altamont Gardens recently & we have say that has to be one of the best garden experiences ever! If there were awards going Altamont Gardens would surely win that Gold Medal. What a way to spend a few hours. If you are living in Ireland or a visitor to our beautiful country may sure you take time to visit... More

absolutely lovely gardens with roses, rhodedendrons and many species of trees, some of which are clearly very old. The house is unoccupied and falling into disrepair which is a shame.

Nothing to dislike. So well worth a visit. Get lost in the walks. Unfortunately the river walk was closed the day we visited but it was still so worth the visit and its FREE.

We would go here on regular occasions. The kids love walking through the lovely gardens with the lovely smell of the roses. Then we go down into the woods,walk along by the river slaney & back up the famous '100 steps' which is one serious workout. Great day out for all ages.

Absolutely loved the coffee shop - in a wonderful setting in the garden. Kudos to whomever built it as it fits in so well. We were busy taking away ideas for our own gardens. The main garden is small but a delight to walk around. We took a walk over the hill to the temple and down to find even... More

I have been here three times this summer with my wife and once with our daughter and her four children. The grounds are breathtakingly beautiful so take the time to walk all of the gardens. They sell flowers and plants here and we purchased a number of flowers at a very reasonable price--we filled two window boxes for €20. You... More
