I have been in Mount Congreve House & Gardens many times over the past seven years. It is a wonderful facility and the people of Waterford City & County are very privileged to have this facility. All members of staff are very helpful & welcoming.

Coffee was great but cakes and sandwiches a little past their best, very quiet gentle space to stop for a rest. Go for the panini as they were yummy.
