The gardens of Tramore House in County Waterford are open to the public free of charge. The 1-hectare Victorian gardens have been restored to their former glory under the Great Gardens of Ireland Restoration Programme.
Located in County Waterford, Tramore House is a Victorian home surrounded by a 1-hectare garden, which is open to the public free of charge. For decades the old garden had laid dormant and almost forgotten as many others of that period often do. Now it is coming back to life as a restored Victorian garden with the help of The Great Gardens of Ireland Restoration Programme.
The restoration project includes the replanting of the formal garden in front of the house using boxwood, roses, catmint, lavender and clematis. This will become an inviting first impression for those drawn into the garden by the colours and fragrance of the newly planted beds and borders. Further down the garden, a series of paths lead the visitor through the wooded slopes to the water basin, canal and rock garden. An herbaceous border follows the main route through the garden and a shrub border will shelter the garden from the worst ravages of the salt-laden air. A gazebo, garden seats, the grottoes, the waterside plantings and eventually the bedding schemes will convey the exuberance of the Victorian garden.
Please note, Tramore House is not open to the public, as it is currently used as the Regional Design Office for the National Roads Authority.
