At Powerscourt and Glendalough

Powerscourt Estate is a magnificent house and its gardens are framed by the Sugar Loaf mountain and provide a wonderful opportunity to walk through beautiful flowing Italian Gardens, Japanese Gardens and Walled Gardens. The house is partly restored but the real beauty are what are considered Ireland’s best gardens.

Glendalough Monastery and National Park which offers a great collection of churches and a round tower dating back 1,000 years as well as lakeside walks.


Enjoy a superb lunch at the award winning Avoca Cafe or perhaps a pub lunch in the nearby Roundwood village (Ireland’s highest village).
