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.

Recently visited here. Lovely place but probably at its best in Spring. Lovely walks throughout for all levels of fitness. Coffee shop and plant and farm shop on site. Narrow gauge railway stops outside. Very peaceful.
