Powerscourt Estate in September Powerscourt Estate,
Enniskerry,
Co. Wicklow


Powerscourt Estate in North County Wicklow, owned by the Slazenger Family for over 50 years, started as a castle in the 12th Century owned by the le Poer (Power) family. It was later owned by the O'Tooles and the Fitzgeralds, Earls of Kildare.
In 1603 Powerscourt Castle and lands were siezed and granted to an English arrival named Richard Wingfield whose family owned the estate until the Slazenger family bought it 350 years later. The Wingfields remodelled the old castle into the beautiful house which, despite a fire in 1974, stands to this date.
The Gardens, designed by Daniel Robertson (was one of the leading proponents of Italianate garden design which was influenced by Italian Renaissance villas), were developed over the following decades be various members of the Wingfiled family.
Powerscourt Waterfall is Ireland's highest at 398ft (121m) and featued in such Hollywood movies such as Excalibur.

These photos were taken in September 2011.

“VOTED THE MOST ROMANTIC GARDEN TO VISIT IN THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND” BBC’s Gardener’s World Magazine 2010.

“VOTED THE BEST GARDEN TO VISIT IN THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND” BBC’s Gardener’s World Magazine 2009 and 2010.

“ONE OF MY TOP 10 FAVOURITE GARDENS” Monty Don, Celebrity Gardener.

Mount Usher, set in 22 acres of gardens along the banks of the River Vartry in County Wicklow, is a truly beautiful example of the "Robinsonian" style of informal layout and the use of the natural landscape. The garden is laid out with a natural feel and has a "free-flowing informality".
The garden was started by Edward Walpole Snr in 1868. The original site was formerly a mill, hence the cascades and pools, and evolved to host a wonderful collection of plants and trees.

Only half an hour from Dublin, Mount Usher is close to Wicklow and Bray towns, historic Glendalough and beautiful Luggala. This garden is definitely worth a visit.

Glendalough's beautiful valley and ancient monastic city are a favourite place amongst visitors to Wicklow National Park.
Sculpted by glaciers during the last Ice Age the beautiful valley of Glendalough is one of the the most visited place in Ireland.
After the Ice Age debris at the sides of the valley collapsed and two lakes were formed behind the dams which were created by these landslides.
Situated in the centre of Wicklow National Park the Glendalough Valley, or ‘The Valley of the Two Lakes’, has a history dating back to the early Christian days of Ireland.
It is one of Ireland’s most important sites for monastic ruins.
Founded by Saint Kevin, this important Christian community developed from the 5th century to become one of Ireland’s great ecclesiastic locations and a place of study and learning for Europeans seeking sanctuary from the chaos of the Dark Ages after the collapse of the Roman Empire.

The Dingle Peninsula is a beautiful area of Co. Kerry with spectacular scenery.
Dingle Harbour is a natural shelter on the wild Atlantic coast of Ireland which offers shelter from the most violent of Atlantic Storms, and was described by National Geographic as ‘the most beautiful place on earth’.
The town Dingle/an Daingean itself grew and prospered because of this beautifully situated haven which, for centuries, offered sanctuary in bad weather and afforded traders sheltered moorings and a market where they could conduct business.

It is used as a base by many who tour the Dingle Peninsula for its spectacular views and treasure trove of historic sites and natural features varying from awe inspiring cliffs, long sandy beaches, and picturesque villages.
