The very popular Snowdrop Week at Altamont Gardens runs from February 6th – 12th and is a great opportunity to view this unique collection, first started by Corona North, former owner of the gardens, and now amongst the largest in Ireland, with over 100 named varieties. Daily guided tours at 2 p.m. (admission €3) with Head Gardener, Paul Cutler while the gardens are open with free admission 9 a.m. – 4.30 p.m. for general viewing. Altamont Plant Sales has an excellent supply of snowdrops and spring bulbs for sale and the Walled Garden Café is open for hot drinks and homemade cakes. Advance booking of group tours is appreciated.
