Altamont Gardens

Altamont Gardens is located in Tullow, Co. Carlow, it has one of the largest collections of Snowdrops in Ireland. A group of members from Offshoot Photographic Society visited in mid-February in order to take photos of the Snowdrops as well as other signs of Spring. This was my first visit to Altamont Gardens, I found the gardens impressive and look forward to returning later in the year. The photos of trees below are reflections of trees on the lake. These Gardens are situated on the banks of the River Slaney and are considered both a jewel of Irish gardens as well as being one of the most romantic. The history of Altamont goes back as far as the 16th century. I have included links to both the club and the gardens.
