Mothers' Day at Salterbridge Gardens

Sunday 3rd April is Mothers’ Day and Salterbridge Gardens, Cappoquin are the perfect destination for you and your mum on the day. The gardens will be open in aid of Cappoquin’s two churches from noon until 5 o’clock. There will be teas, a plant sale and a treasure hunt.

The garden which surrounds Salterbridge , a Victorian country house, is filled with many camellias, magnolias and beautiful rhododendron. Green shrubs are dotted throughout the garden as well as many species of tall, mature trees including, most notably, four fine Irish yews and a cork oak. 3rd April is an ideal date for a visit as the six-acre garden is at its best in the spring.

To get to Salterbridge from Cappoquin, take the Lismore road (N72) and after half a mile the first house on the right is the Salterbridge Gatelodge. Go through the black gates and three quarters of a mile up the avenue you will find Salterbridge House

Entry is €5.00 for adults. Accompanied children go free. For further information please contact Philip or Susie Wingfield on 087-2030763.
