Arts & Leisure
Located in the heart of County Waterford and open year-round, the world-renowned Mount Congreve Gardens are a haven for plant and history lovers alike, as well as for those simply looking to relax in nature. Boasting one of the largest private collections of plants globally and described as ‘A Great Garden of the World’ the entire collection features plants from every continent.
To make the most of your visit take a guided tour where you will enter the gardens through the house. Afterwards you can relax in the Stables Café where you will be served only the freshest of local produce. Or why not step back in time and experience afternoon tea in the beautifully restored Tack Room? Afternoon tea is served on three-tier cake stands with crisp white linen, Irish silverware and fine bone china.
For those looking to hold an unforgettable event, Mount Congreve Gardens cater for everything from intimate dining to grand banqueting. Memorable occasions can be enjoyed in both the Library Room and the Large Drawing Room, also known as the Chinese Room due to its exquisite hand-painted wallpaper.
No visit to Mount Congreve Gardens is complete without a visit the Secret Garden shop – it offers a unique range of gift ideas inspired by the beauty of nature and the gardens.
