Mount Congreve Gardens listed by Conde Nast Traveller in their ‘Best Place To Go’ 2024
The prestigious international travel magazine ‘Conde Nast Traveller’ has zoned in on Mount Congreve for their ‘Best Place To Go in the UK & Ireland’ 2024 listing.
Conde Nast says of the list, “At the end of each year, we look ahead to what’s coming next in the travel world as we pick out the top destinations we’d recommend to our fellow globetrotters for the following 12 months. Our expert contributors nominate the destinations that are on the up right now. These nominations make up the Best Places To Go in 2024, in which we shine a light on the places that are due their moment in the sun.”
They go on to say, “This list is an edit of the regions, cities and neighbourhoods in the UK & Ireland that are worthy of your time & attention in the next 12 months. All 12 destinations are places we’re excited about recommending for your 2024 plans – 12 spots that should be on your radar when it comes to plotting your all-important annual leave, & which will hopefully remind you that some of the most beautiful places in the world are right here on home turf. Happy travels.”
Of the 12 places on the list ‘Waterford & Wexford’ are cited together as a Southeast travel destination. It is the only Irish inclusion.
The listing details the newly refurbished Loftus Hall & its imminent opening, the oldest intact operating lighthouse in the world – Hook Lighthouse, Cliff House Hotel in Ardmore & the delicious seafood at The Beach House in Tramore & the magnificent Mount Congreve House and Gardens.
Conde Nast contributor Aoife O’Riordan says, “Hop over the border to County Waterford & the recently restored Mount Congreve House, another palatial pile, overlooking the River Suir with dreamy gardens & a café run by The Pantry at CLIFF, a spin-off of Cliff House Hotel in Ardmore. When the gates close, you will have the gardens all to yourself if you bed down at Mount Congreve’s fairytale gate lodge, which is available to rent, & the Waterford Greenway, an off-road hiking and biking trail along a disused railway line between Waterford City & Dungarvan, passes right by the edge of the estate.”
Sara Dolan, Commercial Director at Mount Congreve Trust says, “We know that this guide & any list they produce is very discerning, so it is a dream come true to be selected & featured, especially in the first year of our opening.
All of the team at Mount Congreve have worked very hard to achieve & deliver a very high standard of hospitality right across the gardens, the café, the house, the gate lodge and for our events so it is a wonderful acknowledgement of their hard work. We can only thank Waterford City and Council & Failte Ireland for all their support in making this possible.”
