Powerscourt Gardens (Enniskerry)

 
Welcome to Powerscourt Gardens in County Wicklow, one of the most beautiful gardens in Ireland awarded by Lonely Planet (voted Top 10 houses in the world) and National Geographic (voted no.3 Garden in the world). The gardens at Powerscourt were laid out over two main periods. Many of the people involved in their creation and development never saw the gardens completed in their lifetime. The design reflected the desire to create a garden which was part of the wider landscape. To the North formal tree plantations framed the vista from the house, while a walled garden, fish pond, cascades, grottos and terraces lay to the South. Walks wound through the wooded grounds and a fine tree lined avenue was created. When you arrive at the tree lined avenue today, hundreds of beech trees will guide your visit. The charming walled garden, the striking terraces, fine statuary and varied trees are linked by carefully designed walks and set in the magnificent surroundings of the Wicklow mountains. Together they form one of the most beautiful Gardens in Ireland.
