Altamont Gardens, Ireland

Altamont Gardens
Tullow, Co Carlow, Ireland

Altamont Gardens is a large, beautiful old world garden, Robinsonian in style with a strong emphasis on the information tradition of combining a good plant collection within the natural landscape of its environment. Lawns and clipped yews slope down to a lake surrounded by rare trees and shrubs. A profusion of roses both ancient and modern, and herbaceous plants scent the air. There is a steep descent through the "Ice Age Glen" to a beautiful river walk.
