Powerscourt Gardens

One of the world's greatest gardens, Powerscourt is situated 12 miles south of Dublin in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains. The garden was begun by Richard Wingfield in the 1740s and stretches out over 40 acres. It is a sublime blend of formal gardens, sweeping terraces and ornamental lakes together with secret hollows, rambling walks, walled gardens and over 200 varieties of trees and shrubs. When visiting the 18th century Palladian house, Powerscourt, take a moment to breathe in the awesome beauty of its gardens.
