One of Waterford’s main tourist attractions, Mount Congreve gardens, is to open every weekend for the winter months.
This is the first time the gardens will be open for the entire year.
Mount Congreve House was built in about 1760 by the local architect John Roberts, who subsequently
designed and built most of the 18th-century public buildings in Waterford, including both cathedrals.
Waterford City and County Council took over the management of Mount Congreve earlier this year.
Mount Congreve is famous for being the home of one of the great gardens of the World
Estate Manager Ray Sinnott says there is always something new in the gardens and there is still plenty to see.
There will be new opening times for the gardens.
It will open at the earlier time of 10 am and the close at 4.30 pm on Saturday and Sunday..
