Set in the rugged Wicklow countryside the 1,000 acre Powerscourt Estate is one of Ireland’s most visited tourism destinations.
More than half a million Irish and overseas visitors visit Powerscourt annually, with more than 230,000 visitors to the gardens alone last year.
Powerscourt Gardens were recently voted No.3 in the World’s Top Ten Gardens by National Geographic.
The Gardens stretch over 47 acres and offer visitors a sublime blend of formal gardens, sweeping terraces, statues and ornamental lakes, secret hollows and rambling walks.
Managed by Head Gardener, Alex Slazenger and a team of four gardeners, Powerscourt Gardens were designed from 1731 onwards, with the desire to create a garden which was part of the wider surrounding landscape.
Powerscourt Gardens include The Walled Gardens, The Italian Garden, The Dolphin Pond, The Japanese Gardens, Pets Cemetery and Pepperpot Tower, among other features and attractions.
Voted in the Top Ten Houses in the World by Lonely Planet, Powerscourt House features a range of artisan stores and the Avoca Terrace Café.
Also located on Powerscourt Estate are two championship Golf Courses, Ireland’s Highest Waterfall and the Five Star Powerscourt Hotel.
