Altamont Gardens

Altamont Gardens – Carlow

We took a trip to Carlow last week to have a look at the college there in preparations for the leaving cert results coming out next week.  It is a lovely town and we made the most of our trip with a stop at Altamont Gardens, there are some really beautiful walks there and of course the Garden shop.  The walks are lovely, beautifully manicured lawns and flowers beds turn into a lake walk leading into a bog walk, that brings you to a walk along the river Barrow and then to a temple at the top of a hill.  I have an addiction to plants and it is impossible for me to go to a garden shop without making some kind of a purchase and Altamont was no different.  They had an excellent selection of plants, and I bought quite a few that I don’t have in the garden and will make lovely new additions to the already fabulous gardens at The Old Rectory Country House Leitrim

The Gardens at The Old Rectory Country House are a stunning array of colour around every turn.
