Ireland has some of the most beautiful public and private gardens in the world. There are formal gardens, Victorian gardens, Japanese gardens, and decorative vegetable gardens. We recommend that you take time to `stop and smell the roses` during your journey. Ask locally about gardens, which may be visited in the area. Remember - all of Ireland is a garden.
Two Must See`s:
The world famous Japanese Gardens at Tully (created between 1906 -1910). The significance of the gardens is not only artistic and horticultural but also philosophical, religious and historical. The garden traces the soul of man from oblivion to eternity, using rare plants and landscapes that evoke the exotic.
One of the world’s great gardens is Powerscourt is in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains. The garden was begun in the 1740s and stretches out over 47 acres. It is a sublime blend of formal gardens, sweeping terraces and ornamental lakes together with secret hollows, rambling walks, walled gardens and over 200 varieties of trees and shrubs. Powerscourt Waterfall has been a major attraction since the 1760's and has been a favorite family picnic spot for years.
