Must see · Garden · Nature / Park
The mysterious and enchanting ambience at Altamont Gardens makes it unlike other gardens. Recognized as one of Ireland's finest, it combines formal and informal landscaping featuring some oaks over 500 years old and a giant redwood planted to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo. Also look for rare azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolias, wild bluebells, and snowdrops. There is something to catch the eye in any season, as different plants flourish here at different times. Have a picnic on the grass with treats supplied by the resident cafe. Put Altamont Gardens and other Tullow attractions into our Tullow online tour builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beautiful gardens but a little overgrown. Pity restaurant closed at 4pm .good value as only have to pay €2 for parking. Lovely walk and you can bring your own picnic . Lots of tables and benches around the place. Would be nice if house was restored and opened to public. Well worth a visit for anyone who likes gardening
  • Loved the walled garden with the magnificent display of flowers, shrubs.,& majestic trees that surrounded the wonderful nature trails. This is a haven and tranquil place to relax. Would love to see Altamount house restored.
