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.

Itinerary

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.

Highlights include;

- Powerscourt Gardens
- Mount Usher Gardens
- Hunters Hotel (subject to availability)
- National Botanic Gardens, Killmacurragh

Following lunch in the 200 year old Hunters Hotel (subject to availability on booking), which is an ancient coaching inn still in the same family for all that time with quaint gardens.

After lunch if energy and time permits we will then visit Kilmacurragh, the country property of the National Botanic Gardens with its long history and outstanding plant collections before returning to Dublin.
