ALTAMONT GARDEN

Amazing holiday packages, welcome to altamont.

K NOWN as the most romantic garden in Ireland, Altamont is an enchanting blend of formal and informal gardens located on a 100 acre estate. Whilst still little known, it ranks in the top ten of Irish gardens and is often referred to as  ‘the jewel in Ireland’s gardening crown’

L AWNS are bisected by sculpted yews sloping down to a romantic lake surrounded by rare trees, rhododendrons and shrubs. A profusion of roses, old fashioned and modern, and herbaceous plants scent the air. A fascinating walk through the Arboretum, Bog Garden and Ice Age Glen with its canopy of ancient oaks leads to the majestic River Slaney. Along the River Walk, you may see salmon and trout rising, perhaps even an otter, and throughout the garden, an abundance of birds and butterflies. On your return via the Hill Walk, there are wonderful views of the Blackstairs and Wicklow Mountains and Mount Leinster.

S O WHY not take a journey back in time in this tranquil old world setting and experience one of the most unique and magical gardens in the British Isles.

T HE MAIN bulk of the house was considerably altered sometime between 1740 and 1750 by either the St. George’s or the Doyne’s. This latter family was certainly in residence in 1777 when the aforementioned Taylor & Skinner map was produced. At that time, the front of the house faced towards the Slaney river and Wicklow mountains. The road to the estate initially ran from Carrigslaney, behind the lake, and up to Kilbride. Upon construction of a new road from Carrigslaney to Kilbride circa 1740, the St. George family turned the house back-to-front by breaching the hall wall in the (then) back of the house and building on the porch with its decorative fanlight and the bow-ended wing consisting of dining room, smoking room, two bedrooms and a lift room. They also added elegant plaster work, rebuilt the staircase, enlarged the windows and altered the house in other ways. A new front and back avenue was made in a semi-circle enclosing the park and very handsome entrance gates erected. It was about this time that lines of magnificent beech trees were planted along the front avenue, roadside and Nun’s Walk, and specimen limes, beeches and chestnuts planted in the park.

F URTHER alterations were made by new owners, the Borrors, in the 1850’s. They added on an extending wing to the north of the house for a library and other rooms and, later in 1871, a butler’s pantry with cook’s room above to the south end of the house. To complete this enormous task, the Borrors family made sure to hire a range of tools , including pickaxes and shovels, to assist with the digging.. They were also responsible for having the lake dug out by hand after the Irish Famine to give employment to the local population. Over 100 men with horses and carts spent two years completing this enormous task. The Broad Walk and terraces leading down to the lake were also laid out at this time and many beds, pools and summerhouses were added, with urns and statuary in appropriate places. Walks were laid through the ancient oak woods and the ice age glen down to the river Slaney. A hundred hand-cut granite steps were laid to negotiate the steep gradient leading up from the river bank, to a walk back through the top of the bluebell wood. The woodland walks and 100 steps are believed to have been designed, or more probably influenced, by William Robinson, the renowned garden designer, who created a taste for the Natural or Wild Garden and is credited with the layout of a number of gardens in the locality.

A Brief History of Altamont House and Garden

O RIGINALLY, Altamont is thought to have been the site of a convent, although there seem to be no existing records to corroborate this. However, the house as it exists today was evidently built upon the remains of an earlier dwelling dating from at least the 16th century; immensely thick walls, paved granite floors and arrow slit windows in the centre basement of the house testify to this. There is also evidence of a monastic site on adjoining land – the convent at Altamont is believed to have been its ‘Sister House’. At this time the estate is thought to have been known as Rose Hill, the name being subsequently changed to Soho and marked thus on a map of 1777 (produced by Taylor & Skinner). The estate eventually came to be called Altamont sometime in the late 18th century, through some connection with the Marquis of Sligo. (Lord) Altamont was a title conferred then on the eldest son.

T HE REMAINS of a chapel are still to be seen on the Dark Walk, in the form of a windowed end wall. However, the stained glass herein is believed to date from Victorian times. Other fragments of the chapel have been incorporated into sections of the house – beneath the library and above the front bedroom window of the south wing.

I N 1923, Feilding Lecky Watson and his family moved temporarily to Altamont while the drains were being repaired at their home, Lumclone. The Watsons came to Carlow in the 1640’s, became Quakers and built Kilconnor, Ballydartin and Lumclone near Fenagh. (See J. O’Toole’s book – The Carlow Gentry). They fell in love with the house and garden at Altamont, especially as the soil was better suited to ericaceous plants, and subsequently purchased it.

T HEREAFTER, Feilding Lecky Watson began extending his collection of rhododendrons which he had started on his return from Ceylon, from where he was invalided by malaria during World War l. Due to his incapacity, he devoted himself to growing rhododendrons from seed sent back by various expeditions and exchanged seedlings with many well-known gardeners including Sir Frederick Moore, then curator of the National Botanic Garden in Glasnevin. Feilding and his wife continuously extended and planted up the garden which had become completely overgrown. He is also responsible for erecting the Myshall Gate behind the promontory at the far side of the lake. The gates were a salvaged gift from Myshall House, one time home of the Cornwall Brady’s, which was burnt down during The Troubles. (Feilding was a cousin of this family through one of the Brady’s marrying a Watson.) The pillars were erected by Feilding and the two granite balls atop them moved from either side of the Archery Lawn (now the lawn by the Azalea Walk.)

F EILDING died in 1943 and, after the war, his youngest daughter Corona returned home and spent many years trying to retrieve his rhododendrons from the jungle that had enveloped them. In about 1950 she planted the Davida and Tulip trees, and the Taxodiums and Cornus Kusa which now make such features. In 1952, with only the assistance of one “strong” man, a flat-bottomed punt and a grappling hood, Corona cleared the lake of lily roots and reeds and continued clearing and planting up until her marriage to Gary North. Upon her marriage in 1966, she and her husband built on to the Keeper’s Cottage overlooking the river (Altamont Lodge) and made a new garden there. During this period, Corona planted a new arboretum and created the Bog Garden, and a walk was completed from the Lodge to the house. In 1983, Corona and Gary North pooled resources with Corona’s mother, Mrs. Lecky Watson, in a final bid to return the lake to its former glory. The draining and subsequent mechanical clearing of the lake, necessitating the removal of 4½ feet of mud, roots and reeds over 2½ acres and over 60 fallen trees, was eventually completed in 1985.

U PON the death of her mother in that same year, Corona and Gary North moved back into the big house and resumed the renovation and reclamation of the garden which, once again, had fallen into virtual dereliction. This included the restoration and refurbishment of what are now ‘The Stewards House’, ‘The Granary’ and ‘The Mews’. The latter, which had been turned into stables in the 1850’s, had become so derelict that everyone then thought it should be bulldozed. A new public entrance with a tea garden was created, and a tea room and kitchen were made in part of the Lower Courtyard. Both of the Coachhouses had to be re-roofed as they had fallen in completely. Corona North also rebuilt the 18th century vinery greenhouse and started the Garden Centre in part of the Walled Garden which first had to be cleared of the jungle it had become. Other works included levelling the lawns and making the Goldfish Pond beside the house, and designing and planting the conifer and shrub beds to either side of this.

L ATER, with the help of a FAS Community Employment Scheme, an Art Gallery/Lecture Room was incorporated in another of the old Coachhouses and a Craft Shop established in part of the old kennels. Further alterations were made to provide offices, toilets, a canteen etc. and a new stone bridge was built as a focal point at the upper end of the lake.   1998 saw the completion of a Temple/Folly in the Sunset Field and a Pergola/Wisteria Walk joining the two bridges on the lake.

S ADLY, Corona North passed away on the 7th February 1999 after a brave battle against cancer. She is greatly missed by all.

Principal Collections:

E XCEPT in a few cases, collections are not grouped together. Because of the informal nature of the garden, species and cultivars of each genus listed below tend to be spread throughout the garden and estate.

A LTAMONT contains a good selection of fine mature specimen conifers including species of Abies, Cedrus, Chamaecyparis, Pinus, Taxus, Sequoidendron and Araucaria. Other conifers planted in the last 50 years and becoming established are Taxodium, Metasequoia and cultivars of Chamaecyparis and Thuja. There is also a collection of Dwarf Conifers, displaying an interesting range of form and foliage colour, including cultivars of Cryptomeria, Juniperus, Pinus, Thuja and Tsuga etc.

T HERE are a significant number of genera of broadleaved trees. The largest collections are of Sorbus, Acer and Quercus, but there are also good representations of Nothofagus, Eucryphia, Malus, Prunus and a fine collection of Cornus. There are several good specimens of Hoheria sexstylosa and Embothrium coccineum.

T HERE are extensive and varied shrub plantings, the most important collections being of Rhododendron and Rosa. The Rosa collection covers all rose types but there is a particularly fine collection of shrub roses. Other genera well represented are Camellia, Pieris, Magnolia, Hydrangea, Viburnum and Budleia.

A  WIDE selection of perennials are present due to the variety of conditions available: natural shade areas; sunny dry borders; and damp beds around the lake, ponds and streams. The most significant collections are of Crocosmia, Hosta, Geranium, Iris, Helleborus, Primula, Phormium and Viola.

T HE COLLECTIONS in the group play a very important role at Altamont in maintaining colour and interest throughout the seasons. In the Spring, very good collections of Galanthus and Narcissus can be seen, containing many species and named cultivars. In the Autumn, Colchicum and Cyclamen are the main collections although these two genera are important due to their quantity rather than number of species. For the Summer, there are a good number of Lilium.

T HE HOUSE, courtyards and other walls are well clothed with collections of climbers including Hedera, Lonicera and Jasmium. However, the most important are Rosa (climbers and ramblers), and Clematis which are, in many cases, grown to scramble over trees and shrubs.

T HERE is a good collection of culinary and medicinal herbs in the Herb Garden, including many decorative leaved cultivars. In particular, there are a good number of species and forms of Mentha, Thymus and Origanum.

A  FERNERY is being developed at the north end of the lake which already contains a good selection of hardy native and cultivated ferns.

Collection of Plants

P LANTED by succeeding generations of owner-gardeners, Altamont contains a collection of trees dating from 1750 to the present day. In the Ice Age Glen can be found stately sessile oaks of over 500 years old. There is an extensive collection of Sorbus, Quercus, Acer, Cornus, Nothofagus and Rosa and many fine examples of trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants and bulbs. Especially evident are Galanthus (snowdrops – 40 different varieties), Narcissus (daffodils – hundreds of varieties), Lilium, Colchicum, Cyclamen and Sternbergia.

T HE ESTATE gains much of its character from the many mature trees, both natives in the avenues and woodland areas, and exotic specimens throughout the garden. Many of the trees in the avenues date from the 18th century whereas most of the mature exotics were planted in the 19th century. These are interplanted with a very varied selection of more recently planted specimen trees.

T HE GARDEN contains many borders, intensively and informally planted with shrubs, herbaceous plants and bulbs. The formal Broad Walk with its clipped Irish yews contains collections of floribunda and shrub roses, underplanted with bulbs and violas.

T HE SOIL pH enables a wide range of plants to be grown successfully including acid lovers such as Rhododendron, Camellia and Embothrium.

Snowdrops at Altamont Gardens

By Suzanne Pender

THERE are few happier sights than the delicate white-and-green blooms of the snowdrop peeping through the cold winter ground heralding the start of spring and the gardening year. Their arrival is celebrated throughout some of Co Carlow’s fantastic gardens by a dedicated series of events during February.

The popular Snowdrop Month at Altamont Gardens runs from 1-28 February and is a great opportunity to view this unique collection, first started by Corona North, former owner of the gardens. Having been further developed by the Office of Public Works (OPW) over the last 20 years, the collection is now among the largest in Ireland, with over 150 named varieties.

Guided tours take place Monday to Friday throughout February at 2pm and group tours by appointment. The gardens are open daily for general viewing from 9am to 4.30pm. Advance booking of group tours requested.

No galanthophile can afford to miss the Snowdrop Gala at Ballykealey House, Ballon on Saturday 4 February with lectures by Troy Scott Smith (UK), Sissinghurst Castle Garden and Iris Ney (Germany). There are also garden designs, garden tours and lectures.

Following lunch, the afternoon includes a full guided tour of Altamont Gardens and a specialist plants sale in Altamont Plant Sales featuring snowdrops from Avon bulbs via Altamont Plants, Coosheen Plants, Gortkelly Nursery, Fields of Bloom, Assumpta Broomfield, Rosabell Plant Supports and Esker Farm Daffodils (Dave and Joules Hardy).

At €100, the event also includes lectures, lunch, guided tour, exclusive admission to the specialist plants sale and afternoon tea and cake in the Walled Garden Café. Book online at www.altamontplants.com , by PayPal via [email protected] , or by credit card, contact Robert Miller on 087 9822135.

Arboretum’s Inspirational Gardens have a specialist snowdrop programme for 2023. Arboretum founder Rachel Doyle created the gardens in 2010 to inspire her customers. Rachel likes to say that the snowdrops ‘wake up’ the Inspirational Gardens, as they are the first to flower every year; and there is something different every month after that.

Snowdrop fun for all the family is on offer each weekend during Snowdrop Month at Huntington Castle. These historic 17th century grounds feature a collection of snowdrops and crocuses to be enjoyed in a unique setting.

  • Altamont House & Gardens

If there was ever a hidden gem of a garden, this surely is it. In a fairly off the beaten track location in a part of Ireland often overlooked by tourists, you won’t find tour buses or crowds here, but you will find a magical place apart that will linger in your memory.

This is a large garden, covering the best part of 100 acres, and including formal gardens, woodlands and a beautiful riverside walk. The waterlily covered lake is the centerpiece, surrounded now by hundreds of rare trees and great sweeps of rhodedendrons it was created during the famine years as part of a project to local employment. As you walk though the bog garden, the arboretum and the ice glen to the riverbank you will find numerous little shady nooks or gaps in the trees opening to vistas of the Blackstairs Mountains and everywhere wonderful specimen tress and shrubs careful arranged to compliment each other and the surrounding landscape.

Each month and season brings new delights, carpets of snowdrops and bluebells in early spring give way later to the dazzling yellows of daffodil time, from mid-May the vibrant colours of many varieties of rhododendron are to the fore while summer is a riot of colour with roses, azaleas, peonies,  tiger lilies, cyclamens and colchicums among the many flowers vying for attention.

Secret garden

Although Altamount has many rare plants and trees in its collection, there is a strange sense that it all just grew naturally, testament to the skill and dedication of those who created the garden. Foremost among those were Feilding Lecky Watson, who was responsible for most of the planting around the lake, and his daughter Corona North, who lovingly maintained and expanded the garden until her death in 1999. She bequethed the estate to the nation and it is now in the care of the Parks and Wildlife service.

Altamont House

The beautiful old house is now, sadly, in a state of advancing decay. It provides a suitably romantic backdrop to this most romantic of gardens, but it would be lovely to see it restored and alive again.

“Roughly 23 years ago we rented a house at the sea to do an art experiment. The novel and expansive environment combined with a healthy dose of momentum helped us find that ever sought after FLOW state and the songs that became known as ‘Morning View’ have since become indelible and deeply important parts of our lives,” said Brandon Boyd.

“This album helped propel our little art experiment called ‘Incubus’ into a way of life and here we are today, some 23 years later, about to introduce a new/next phase of it’s existence. ‘Morning View xxiii’ is a re-recording/re-think of the 2001 album and is the result of our desire to honor this burgeoning legacy but also reimagine it as musicians who have been lovingly performing these songs night after night for the last 23 years. See you on the road soon!”

ABOUT INCUBUS

As a sonic and spiritual enigma, Incubus continue to stretch, shape, and shake the foundation of alternative music, embracing endless possibilities and eclipsing any and all boundaries in the process. The multiplatinum Los Angeles band—Brandon Boyd [vocals], Mike Einziger [guitar, piano, backing vocals], José Pasillas II [drums], Chris Kilmore [turntables, keyboards], and Nicole Row [bass]—tune into the creative exchange between them and beam it back to audiences as loudly (and lovingly) as possible. To date, the quintet have notably sold over 23 million albums, scored dozens of multi-platinum and platinum certifications around the globe, gathered billions of streams, and notched six consecutive Top 5 debuts on the Billboard 200. At the same time, they have graced the bills of festivals such as BottleRock, Ohana, Lollapalooza, and Rock In Rio in addition to headlining arenas and amphitheaters worldwide. During 2021, the musicians celebrated the 20th anniversary of their seminal double-platinum third full-length offering, Morning View, with a worldwide livestream. Incubus returned to the house where they famously recorded the album and performed the entire tracklisting from front-to-back for the first time. It incited a rapturous fan response, and the band decided to do it again in October 2023. The group sold out the legendary Hollywood Bowl and performed Morning View in front of a hometown audience, unassumingly kickstarting another era. Between launching a massive US Morning View arena tour in 2024, they ignite the next phase of Incubus with Morning View XXIII and more new music on the horizon. So, are you in?

Moscow in 1 Day (Walking tour)

Welcome to visit moscow tours.

We provide authentic, informative and memorable tour packages and city tours, at very competitive prices. Visit Moscow Tours are available not only in Moscow, but also in other cities: Saint Petersburg, Kazan, Suzdal and Sergiev Posad.  We also organise customised individual programs tailored just for you.

Our guests come in large groups, small private groups, as couples or as single travellers. We take care of and treat our guests with respect in a friendly and warm family environment. We show people our beautiful cities with passion and deep knowledge of their history, culture and traditions.

Our guides are extremely hospitable, helpful and well-informed. They are simply the best because only by providing the best services can we make the world fall in love with Russia. And we are very happy when our guests say that they will definitely come back to Russia and that they will tell all their friends how great Russia is! That is what inspires us to put even more dedication and hard work into our tours, knowing that what we do is positive and meaningful.

Our classic tours include tours of Moscow and Saint Petersburg, two main Russian cities.

Moscow is a big and busy  megalopolis and Russia’s capital city, where more than 12 million people live and work. Our capital city is happening place; it is mysterious, elegant, luxurious, fashionable, clean and bright, with its unique legends, traditions and events. It is with great pride that we show the Red Square and the Kremlin, our Underground and Tretyakovskaya Gallery, among other stunning attractions.

Saint Petersburg is our second capital,  the second largest city in the Russian Federation. This wonderful city has a strong and lively aristocratic spirit, uniquely Russian royal architecture, magnificent museums and theatres. Saint Petersburg bears the royal heritage of Russia, which can be felt in its air, its streets, parks, monuments, museums and citizens.  In Saint Petersburg tours, we will take you to the Hermitage, Peter and Paul Fortress, Faberge Museum and Orthodox Cathedrals. We’re sure you will love it!

If you have a few more days to spare, venture into the dreamy Russian countryside in Suzdal or Sergiev Posad. Suzdal is a small town with a population of about ten thousand people, situated on less than 15 square kilometres. This tiny area is home to 53 historic cathedrals, five monasteries and a kremlin. Church domes are visible like mushrooms from anywhere and everywhere in the town like in a fairy tale. No wonder Suzdal is called the ‘Town Museum”.  It is definitely worth visiting!

Just try any of Visit Moscow Tours’ tour packages or any individual city tour, and we promise that you will want to come back to Russia again.  Russia is huge with countless amazing places to visit. There are so many unique experiences to be had and energies to be felt that one tour is definitely not enough to explore this vast land. It is also a very safe destination to travel, and we have a tradition of warm hospitality. Our people adore and take care of visitors as our own guests, and even if they do not know your language very well, they still try to be helpful and hospitable.

Our guides will show you the most interesting attractions and historical places, taking you on a journey to the past to enjoy stories of medieval times, the Romanov monarchy, the Soviet Era. And of course, we will show you the contemporary life of our country through authentic local experiences.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

Day 1 Panoramic city tour

Welcome to the glorious capital of Russia, Moscow! You’ll be met by your driver at the airport and taken to your centrally located hotel.

After check-in and rest, meet your private guide at the hotel lobby for a comprehensive tour of Moscow by car. Visit the starkly contrasting Theatre Square to see the stunning Bolshoi Theatre, pass Tverskaya Street, the city’s main boulevard and home to the landmark Yeleseyevskiy Grocery Store.

Putting the ‘mum’ in chrysanthemum: An English garden tour with my mother

Tracey Davies struggles to differentiate between ha-has and hydrangeas, but takes her green-fingered mum on a tour of England's finest gardens

Pursed lips and gasps of "traitor" and "Astroturf" roll around the dinner table. "What would Alan [Titchmarsh] say?" tuts my mother, Patricia. A gardener herself, she loves nothing more than a National Trust visit followed by a lovely cream tea, so I’ve decided to take her on this tour as a birthday treat.

Growing up in East Sussex, many a summer weekend was spent exploring the National Trust's stately homes and sprawling manor houses, where my brother and I would run around the beautiful manicured gardens of Sheffield Park, Petworth and Wakehurst Place. Our family was also fond of a castle or two and would often frequent the pleasure gardens of Scotney, Hever and Sissinghurst Castle , just over the (herbaceous) border in Kent. Even now, the warm scent of honeysuckle, gardenia and rose takes me right back to those halcyon days of a long summer holiday.

While I mainly recall the towering mazes and gnarly ancient trees that I climbed – and regularly fell out of – in the various grounds of posh houses, I do remember being particularly enamoured by Sissinghurst Castle's gardens . A charming Elizabethan manor house in Kent, Sissinghurst Castle was the home of the author and poet, Vita Sackville-West, who spent years creating a heavenly horticultural haven in its grounds with her diplomat husband, Harold.

In fact, I think it was Sissinghurst that inspired my mother to colour-code our own backyard to emulate Vita's beautiful White Garden, which was filled with white blooms of gladioli, irises and dahlias.

My brother and I loved nothing more than getting lost in the giant yew tree maze at Hever Castle. In fact, I remember Mum regularly hiding out in the walled kitchen gardens of any historical house in search of some rare peace and quiet. It's only now, as a parent myself, that I truly appreciate the peaceful calm of an English country garden. I can now see the draw of whiling away a few hours chatting to the rhododendrons and azaleas.

On our grand garden tour , we visited Ragley Hall in Warwickshire, the ancestral home of the Marquess of Hertford, which features in an episode of The Crown . Set in 450 acres of grounds, the landscape had been designed by a chap called 'Capability' Brown. The first time I heard about Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, I assumed he was a cowboy rather than landscape gardener. I've since found out that he was probably the most famous garden designer in history – sorry Monty – and he earned his nickname during his reign in the 18th century by describing parks and gardens as having 'great capabilities'. His unique vision determines much of England's landscape today.

"Prince Regent was a regular visitor to Ragley and once suggested over breakfast that his view of the Warwickshire hills would be vastly improved by a castle," explained our guide, Gordon. "The next time he stayed, Brown had built a folly – Oversley Castle – complete with tooth-shaped battlements in the distance." We spend a lovely hour pottering around the gardens, where Mum has a to-do with a grumpy peacock by the ‘fumpary’, which apparently is a cross between a stumpery and a fernery.

Our next stop was Bowood House, near Bath, where Brown's rolling lawns, lush plantations and sweeping lake are said to be one of his finest legacies. "It's only now, some 250 years after he first designed the gardens that Brown's vision is realised to its full extent," said our guide, Debbie. Brown always designed his landscapes with the far future in mind, never seeing them to completion hundreds of years later, proving that gardening is not a hobby for the impatient.

garden tour

For her next big birthday, I've promised to take Mum to the Isles of Scilly as she's become rather fond of big, colourful tropical plants. Built around the ruins of a Benedictine Abbey, the 19th century Tresco Abbey Garden , on the tiny island of Tresco, has been described as 'Kew without the glass' thanks to its wealth of sub-tropical plants from around the world. I'll no doubt lose her among the towering palms, blazing flame trees and the magnificent bulbous head of giant protea. I just hope they've got a maze.
