One of Europe’s Finest Gardens

Located within the 1,000 Acre Powerscourt Estate, Powerscourt Gardens are world famous (and recently voted No.3 in the World’s Top Ten Gardens by National Geographic) and receive 250,000 visitors a year. Set in the wild Wicklow countrywide in Ireland, overlooking the Sugarloaf Mountain, Powerscourt enjoys a breath-taking panorama. The Gardens stretch over 47 acres and offer visitors a sublime blend of formal gardens, sweeping terraces, statues and ornamental lakes, secret hollows and rambling walks.

Powerscourt Gardens were laid out over a period of 150 years and were designed to create a garden that was part of the wider landscape. Fine statuary and ironworks collected from across Europe adorn these magnificent gardens.

Powerscourt House features a range of craft and interior shops featuring Irish Design. The Avoca Terrace Café offers Irish artisan home-cooked cuisine.
