A garden party
Known as the Garden County of Ireland, Wicklow is where you’ll find 47 acres of gardens so impressive that they have been voted the third best in the world by National Geographic. Let your imagination run wild at Powerscourt Estate and Gardens amongst the lakes, valleys, walled gardens and secret hollows of a vast and historic estate. Don’t forget to climb to the top of Pepperpot Tower for sweeping panoramic views, and, while you’re here, why not pay a visit to Ireland's largest waterfall located on the grounds of the estate?
If you have more time
Founded in the 1860s, Mount Usher Gardens enchant and intrigue in equal measure – pop into the nearby Avoca café for some great local produce after your ramble. And, just a short drive away, you’ll find the scenic gardens and a delightful Tea Room at Kilruddery House, one of the great houses of Ireland.
