"Powerscourt" Powerscourt House and Gardens Tip by tvdm
Powerscourt House and Gardens, Dublin: 4 reviews and 4 photos
This grand estate in county Wicklow is but a short drive away from Dublin but already far enough to enjoy nothing but fresh air and beautiful vistas. The mansion featured in films such as "Barry Lindon" and "Far and Away" and although it was destroyed by fire in the late 20th century, it has been extensively restored and fitted with shops.
The highlight of the site, though, are the gardens. They overlook the Wicklow Mountains and are beautifully laid out in terraces. It's all magnificent and gradionse, so be sure to wander around and get a whiff of what Irish high society life must have been in the days of yore!
