Voted the number one thing to do in Carlow by Tripadvisor and described as "An Oasis of Peace and Tranquility", Delta sensory gardens are set on a 2.5 acre site with 16 interconnecting gardens located on the outskirts of Carlow Town. The gardens have so much to offer the visitor during all the seasons of year, from the bright and beautiful daffodils and tulips in Spring to the breathtaking colours of the autumnal foliage.


Delta Centre also runs a busy garden centre with a wide range of planted containers, pots, seasonal bedding, shrubs, plants and gardening accessories. There is a restaurant and coffee shop on site, serving from breakfast to carvery lunch and right through to afternoon tea.


The gardens contain numerous water features including the famous Kugal - one tonne of pink marble floating on a cushion of water.


The Delta Sensory Gardens were officially opened in 2007 as the first of their kind in Ireland. The gardens are now a major tourist attraction in Carlow for local, national and international visitors. The gardens are fully wheelchair accessible and have proven to be a very popular place to visit for active retirement groups, families, school trips and bus tours.
