The Stables Café Mount Congreve House & Gardens Kilmeaden Co Waterford

Ireland’s Visitor Attractions have been moving up to a new level of late, lifting the destination appeal of their regions and not only delighting visitors but also creating a real sense of pride in local communities. Good food has not always been a given, but that is changing. And no better example is to be found than Mount Congreve House and Gardens in Co Waterford.

Prepare to be delighted by the estate-produced and local food offered, and much else besides.
