Great to be able to share that we are working with The Office of Public Works to develop visitor facilities for the house and outbuildings at Altamont House & Gardens. Altamont is a beautiful historic demesne in Carlow and a must-see for garden enthusiasts.
Patrick O’Donovan, T.D, Minister of State with responsibility for the Office of Public Works, made the announcement last week whilst opening the renovated walled gardens:
“The appointment of architects signals the start of the design phase for the Altamont House and Gardens Development Project, which will allow us to further develop the estate and realise its wonderful potential as a leading visitor attraction and heritage garden in Ireland’s South East. The OPW will be consulting with stakeholders as plans emerge and we hope to see, over the coming years, upgraded car parking facilities, access to the ground floor of the house by visitors, provision of visitor facilities in the Granite and Bell Tower Courtyards including a café, natural heritage education area, and a gallery and interpretative exhibition space through careful adaption of existing buildings.”
