Summer Fair at Mount Congreve

Summer Fair at Mount Congreve a great Success!

Fun, families, food and fauna, mix all these together and you have, what sums up, the Summer Fair at Mount Congreve on Sunday the 17th of July! Thousands flocked to the world famous gardens over the weekend for Mount Congreve’s first Summer Fair.  With lots of activities for kids including a treasure hunt which was a great way to explore the over 70 acres of gardens and 16 kilometres of paths, designed and planted by Ambrose Congreve, Mount Congreve is a real jewel in the crown of Waterford gardens.

Summer fairs and festivals always attract some of the best artisan food producers that we have here in Waterford and visitors were spoiled for choice with the smells and aromas of freshly made food, a heaven for all food lovers.  Bouncy castles, balloon model making, face painting, archery, wood carving, fairy craft painting and so much more were on offer and tours of the gardens went down a treat.
