    THE 70-acre Mount Congreve Gardens overlooking the River Suir and located around 7km from Waterford City will close on October 10th, 2021.

    The closure is to facilitate the upcoming works on Mount Congreve House and Gardens as it will be redeveloped into a world-class tourism destination, which is set to open in summer 2022. Funding of €3,726,000 has been approved under the Rural Regeneration Development Fund.

    exciting times ahead

    The redevelopment is set to provide enhanced visitor amenities, including the repair of the historic greenhouse, improved access to grounds and pathways, and provision of family-friendly facilities, car parking and visitor centre with a cafe and retail offering.

    Estate Manager Ray Sinnott said: “There are exciting times ahead for the historic Mount Congreve House and Gardens and we are very much looking forward to working on and unveiling the new visitor experience in 2022.”
