Mount Congreve Gardens join Taste Waterford – and launch a giveaway!

We’re delighted to announce Mount Congreve Gardens has become our latest member – recognised as one of the ‘great gardens of the world’.

When they open later this year following redevelopment works, it’ll offer visitors a fascinating journey of plants, trees and shrubs from around the world, along with eating options to create a truly memorable visit.

Their Mount Congreve Express Café, a retro food truck which is currently open and takes pride of place on the most scenic vantage point in Waterford’s Greenway, will complement The Stables Café when open later this year – with seasonal produce direct from the garden.

Run by Kevin and Elizabeth Byrne of CaToCa, they’ve built a reputation for operating in house and gardens such as Mount Congreve. They believe in championing local and Irish by using the finest, seasonal produce from the kitchen gardens of Mount Congreve, and sourcing only the best from local Waterford producers and from the Island of Ireland.

In doing so, they reduce their carbon footprint and provide natural food free from additives and chemical preservatives whilst supporting the community.

To celebrate Mount Congreve Gardens joining, we’ve teamed up with them to give away four prizes for lunch for two people* at the Mount Congreve Express Café.

To be in with a chance of winning one of the four vouchers, simply visit Taste Waterford on Instagram, and enter by:

Best of luck!
