Since its official re-opening in March 2023, works have been ongoing in restoring the gardens at Mount Congreve and some of the buildings within the gardens including the Georgian Glasshouse, Pagoda and Summer House amongst other projects.

As summer 2024 takes hold, the Walled Garden is producing vegetables and fruits for the Stables Café and offering a new four week subscription box. Available from late June to October, each box includes seven to nine seasonal, naturally grown vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and kale, enough for a family of three to four. Subscribers are encouraged to return the packaging crate each week for sustainability. Each subscription also includes a pot of Mount Congreve jam or honey.

The four-acre walled garden, filled with scent, colour, and water features, is being revitalised by gardeners and students from the Mount Congreve School of Horticulture. Gardeners are excited to share their expertise with the students to ensure the gardens’ future upkeep. The Georgian glasshouse, built in 1844, is also being restored by Queenstown Restoration Ltd, with completion expected by June.

Car park

Additionally, there is now a brand new ‘easy access’ visitor car park, which offers space for 74 cars has now been officially opened at Mount Congreve Gardens in County Waterford. 

Ray Sinnott, estate manager, Mount Congreve, said: “The Walled Gardens at Mount Congreve are an integral and iconic part of the overall garden design and visitor experience. Just within these 4 acres, which have been in continual use for over 270 years, we have herbaceous borders, sweeping lawns, wildflowers and cut flowers for the house, walls covered in wisterias, a maze,  and even a banana tree. 

“Works on irrigation, new and restorative planting along with groundworks and restoration of the original glasshouse have all been underway for the last year, and we are thrilled to now see the first fruits of this labour coming into being.”

Sara Dolan, commercial director, Mount Congreve Gardens, said: “The gardens and the glasshouse are of great international importance and reinvestment in the restoration and the underdeveloped assets on the Estate bolsters our opportunity to generate additional employment and revenue, along with increasing visitor numbers to ensure the long-term viability of this enormously important visitor attraction.”
