We visited the Delta Sensory Gardens during our visit to Carlow a few weeks ago. The staff at the reception/cafe greeted us with a warm welcome. They kindly turned on a water feature for us. Every step though the gardens revealed beauty and delights for the senses. From the innovative structures... a chess set, waterfall, koi ponds, the 'sleeping lady'... More

The weather made it much nicer and for only a fiver we have no complaints at all. We met one of the gardeners Pearce who helped us buy some flowers and he just topped... More

These gardens are so so special. We didn't really know what to expect but we were so happy we had followed Google Maps here! So peaceful and tranquil and yet exciting with surprises around every corner. We visited in March but I will definitely try to make it back in the summer time, I imagine it will be spectacular.

A series of 12 interconnecting sensory gardens, peaceful tranquil space, I'll be back in the Summer. If you're down this way it's a MUST visit.
