Tour Details

Private Guided Day Trip to Wicklow, The Garden County

Take the opportunity to be expertly guided around Powerscourt one of the world’s greatest gardens with beautiful natural setting, outstanding art collection and stunning planting . Voted among the greatest in the world ranking only after Versailles outside Paris and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in England by The National Geographic Magazine readers.

From there we bring you to the wonderful Mount Usher Gardens an outstanding Irish style “Robinsonian” wild garden, a total contrast to Powerscourt with its river setting crammed with rare plants naturalised from all over the world.

We will then have lunch in the 200 year old Hunters Hotel which is an ancient coaching inn still in the same family with quaint gardens. Then if energy and time permits we will visit Kilmacurragh, the country property of the National Botanic Gardens with its long history and outstanding plant collections before returning to Dublin.

Entrance Fees to attractions can be paid by the client on the day or in advance by arrangement
