Keys to the Gardens
Enjoy the ‘Keys to the Garden’ at Mount Congreve Gardens Gate LodgeVisitors to the stunning Mount Congreve Gardens in county Waterford can now linger a little longer as the Georgian Gate Lodge has been beautifully redeveloped to offer a two-bedroom sanctuary in the midst of the majestic 70 acres of gardens. Inside the detached five-bay single-storey gate lodge that dates back to 1775, guests can enjoy a luxurious and stylish interior with plush velvets offering a warm luxe vibe and tones of green creating a seamless transition between its natural surroundings and its lavish new interior. The living space strikes the perfect chord between the old world and contemporary comfort featuring an antique bio-ethanol stove, an 18th-century French day-bed accompanied by classic wing-back velvet armchairs, a Frame Smart TV and even a Gin Bar for guests to enjoy the Mount Congreve Woodland Gin. In the two double bedrooms, the tone is serene and restful with original Louis XVI beds taking centre stage. A classic style small galley kitchen with bespoke marble countertops and Smeg appliances also offers direct access to a private secluded garden and a patio featuring a Bushbuck stone barbeque along with a relaxing garden furniture. A stay at the Mount Congreve Gate Lodge also offers guests ‘the keys to the gardens’ where they can explore, relax and enjoy the entirety of Mount Congreve Gardens all to themselves after hours, a pleasure which cannot be underestimated. Guests to the lodge can also take their four-legged friend to stay and they will also enjoy access to the new wetlands walk on their doorstep which is the dog-friendly route at Mount Congreve Gardens. A welcome hamper will offer a warm welcome for each couple or group of four who arrive to stay, filled with local artisanal produce including Mount Congreve Estate honey, Flahavan’s oats, local organic eggs and more. The luxury gate lodge is ideally positioned for guests to enjoy the convenience of visiting and dining at the new purpose-built visitor centre and Stable Café, which overlooks the magnolia treetops at the 18th-century manor house. A plot-to-plate menu at the Stables Café features an abundance of local produce along with flavours and vegetables fresh from the Mount Congreve Kitchen Gardens and is open for breakfast, lunch and a special Mount Congreve signature Afternoon Tea which is served in the ‘Old Tack Room’.
