Powerscourt Estate Tours

The gardens at the Powerscourt Estate in Wicklow, Ireland, are among the most beautiful gardens in the world. Laid out over two main periods in the mid-1700s and mid-1800s, they are comprised of multiple smaller, themed gardens. The Japanese Garden was laid out in 1908 and is especially enjoyable in the spring when the azaleas are in full bloom, as well as in the fall when the leaves of the maple trees begin to change color. The Tower Valley is a wooded valley with more than 250 species of trees and is home to the Pepperpot Tower, which can be climbed for superb views of the entire estate. Also of note is the series of terraces that connects the house to the lake and the pair of life-sized horses that look over the lake. A fountain in the lake is based on the one in the Piazza Barberini in Rome.

The estate is also home to a pet cemetery, a grotto dating back to 1740 and sculptures of gods and mythical creatures scattered around the gardens.

Practical Info
