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

We stayed a weekend in Mount Woolsey in February in the depths of winter and visited Altamount Gardens nearby. If you are prepared to explore, this place is packed with interesting places and landscapes and the walk down to the river is well worth the effort. We fully intend to bring the Grandchildren back in the Summer, for what should... More

Altamount gardens is a fantastic morning or afternoon outing with a fabulous walk around the lake. If you really fancy a good walk & a work out head into the woods along by the river slaney & back up the 100 steps. Fantasy walk. Love it

Altamont Gardens are worth a visit at any time of the year but they are really special in early Spring when all the snops are out. There are dozens of different varieties and there are lots of clumps of them in the walled garden but in the large garden behind the house there are drifts and carpets of them under... More

This is a lovely garden to visit and certainly much nicer than many of those that charge an entrance fee. We visit at least four times a year and there is always something to "catch the eye" in any season. Visitors to our home are always taken there and really enjoy the experience There is also a well stocked garden... More

A day wandering around Altamont Gardens is a must if you're in the area. It's peaceful, stunning and picturesque. I love a Sunday stroll around the gardens and lakes.
