Mount Congreve Gardens are hosting a free day out for Grandparents this October

Call granny!

On Saturday, October 3rd Mount Congreve Gardens in County Waterford will throw the gates open for free to all grandparents visiting with their grandchildren.

The 70-acre Mount Congreve Gardens, located just 10 minutes from Waterford City, with its 16 km of walking trails, majestic woodlands and beautiful lawns along with its family-friendly nature trail is the perfect family day out.

Talk about a nice day out!

It is the first Grandparents day being celebrated at the gardens and Estate Manager Ray Sinnott feels it is an important occasion to mark in 2020.

“We all know that for many months of this year grandparents sadly lost the opportunity to spend time with their grandchildren as they were cocooning.”

Sinnott says the team at Mount Congreve Gardens is delighted to open the gates to grandparents and enable them to come and enjoy some time exploring nature with their grandchildren to mark national grandparents Day.

“We all know it has been a difficult year for families and especially for the more senior members of the family so we want to give back this opportunity to families for us all of appreciating all the joy and wisdom that grandparents bring to our lives.”

How sweet!

National Grandparents Day for 2020 actually falls on a ‘school day’, Tuesday, October 6th, so to make it easier for people to attend, the celebration date at Mount Congreve Gardens has been set for a Saturday to allow for this.

All tickets to the gardens need to be pre-booked in advance, free tickets to a grandparent will be allocated with any accompanying child or another adult ticket.
