Beautiful gardens with breath taking colours on the flowers. There is a "glen and river" walk and there really are 100 steps on the pathway coming back from the river to the garden. Free admission, cosy cafe and plant sales. Really worth a visit. Some chicks were wandering around the cafe seating area with a proud parent and a grateful... More

Lovely place to bring the kids :) .. beautiful walkway beside the river, 100 steps walk is optional and not for the very unfit or not really suitable for buggies either .. really lovely experience though :) .. lots of places to go with buggy too

The style of this fabulous garden is 'Robinsonian" in other words naturalistic. Much of it was the work of Ms Corona North who bequeathed it to the Irish State on her death. I visit regularly and take a lot of photographs there in all seasons. At weekends in the high season there is a cafe and also a great plant... More

Great for kids to grandparents . The only thing they should leave a box out and let people give 2 or 3 euro if they have it for upkeep . My kids loved it .

Stunning gardens, from manicured lawns to the wild forest area Altamount gardens are a must for visitors to Tullow. Bring a picnic and you can spend a whole afternoon here which is pleasant for both adults and children alike. Bring your walking shoes and your camera though because you'll need both!

These gardens and walk were beautiful. It's really worth the stop! The trees and the lake are lovely and the walk by the river is really worth the detour.

This is so well worth visiting. The garden was awesome with all its spring flowers and so many varieties of daffodils. It all looked breathtaking in the good weather. What a stunning lake with its walks, bridges and so many little nooks to sit down and enjoy the quiet water and the beauty. I could not believe that it was... More

What an enexpected and pleasant find while staying in nearby Tullow for a short visit. Beautiful old gardens and even though only the odd daffodil and fab display of snowdrops were in bloom at the end of February you could feel the beauty and mystery of the place. Lovely old and sadly crumbling house with resident peacock. Highly recommend a... More
