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
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.
Unbelievably beautiful gardens, I could spend hours there. Fantastic views of the river Suir . Highly recommended
A lovely walk but you need someone strong if you are in a wheelchair as it has several hills, mobility scooters its rough ground, wear good walking shoes. A very beautiful place, very lovely and peaceful,
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.
I enjoyed a lovely walk with lots of flowers and shrubs to enjoy en route. Lovely cafe for refreshments with outdoor seating area.
