Altamont, Tullow, Carlow,

Snowdrop Month at Altamont Estate, County Carlow. Visit us and explore the wonderful Altamont Gardens and learn about the extensive Snowdrop collection.

The OPW, in association with the Carlow Garden Trail and Carlow Tourism, is delighted to announce an extension of snowdrop celebrations in Altamont Gardens in 2019. In place of the usual Snowdrop Week, the public are welcome to Altamont Gardens to enjoy Snowdrop Month. This new venture is in response to the great success of Snowdrop Week in recent years.

Join in welcoming the coming of Spring through the fantastic Snowdrops that are coming into bloom at the beautiful Altamont Gardens in County Carlow. This unique collection, first started by Corona North, is now amongst the largest in Ireland with over 100 named varieties.

Guided tours of the highly regarded collection will be provided by head Gardener, Paul Cutler, each Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 14:00 throughout the month of February 2019.
