Experience a private guided tour to County Wicklow Gardens
Ireland has some of the richest garden heritage in the world and with a lot in an easy day trip distance of Dublin. All tours are guided by a professional horticulturist and garden historian who has spent the past 40 years learning about everything there is to know about them.
Highlights include the World Famous Powerscourt and an outstanding Irish style "Robinsonian" wild garden, Mount Usher, a total contrast to Powerscourt with its river setting crammed with rare plants naturalised from all over the world.
Take the opportunity to be expertly guided around one of the world's greatest gardens with its beautiful natural setting, outstanding art collection and stunning planting that is among the greatest in the world ranking only after Versailles outside Paris and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in England in a 2014 poll by The National Geographic Magazine readers by a gardens expert and historian who has known them all is life.
