Mount Congreve Gardens - Review
The place dates back to the late 18th century and attributed to local architect John Roberts who is also the mastermind behind many prominent buildings of Waterford. Commissioned by the John Congreve, son of first Ambrose Congreve of Waterford, this place is known for its wide and extensively striking gardens.
Spread over 70 acres of land, this planted woodland is perfect for a sunny day picnic when in Waterford. Rhododendrons, Magnolias, Camellias adorn the gardens that are home to around 3000 different trees and shrubs including three hundred Acer cultivars, six hundred conifers, two hundred and fifty climbers and fifteen hundred herbaceous plants.
This is termed as one of the ‘Great gardens in the world’ and deserves your piece of time on the trip to Waterford.

Mount Congreve Gardens, Waterford Reviews
Loads of pathes. Well maintained gardens. Absolutely fantastic. It is not too expensive as well. After all there are many trails. Some need a gear and some are just easygoing. A full day out with family there was magnificent.
Lovely gardens for a peaceful stroll. Fab peonies on display at the moment. Nice selection of sandwiches, cakes in the coffee shop. Lots of plants not yet in bloom but will be soon.
Stunning gardens & a lovely tea/coffee area with healthy strong plants for sale. The paeony walk is spectacular at the moment
A lovely rich garden to walk through. Can easily pass an hour or two whilw on the various walks. For the longer walks it's recommended to bring suitable walking boots but alot of the routes can be done in normal shoes.
A local gem for years, it is now open to all. Not expensive, with loads of picnic areas to relax in. Plants from all over the world here. A new platform has been built for the Suir Valley Railway train to stop off, with entry from the greenway. With a tea house and home baked cakes, what's not to like. This is a must see, with a high percentage of return visitors. Enjoy !!!
