The Annual Tulip Festival at Powerscourt Gardens

The Annual Tulip Festival at Powerscourt Gardens

There are gardens, and there is Powerscourt! Discover Powerscourt in spring, when the estate is ablaze with colour. Watch over 10,000 tulips gently dancing in the breeze at the Annual Tulip Festival which takes place from 10th to 24th of April.  Displays of tulips are located throughout the gardens, from the Italian Gardens to the Herbaceous Border. Head Gardener Michael Byrne will give a guided walk of the festival on the 16th of April at 11am and introduce visitors to the many unusual blooms in the gardens.

Don’t miss the Japanese Garden which comes to life in spring. Inhale the fragrances from sweet magnolia flowers, perfumed azaleas and cherry and apple blossom trees, bearing cascades of pink and white flowers. The Camellias in the Memorial Garden are a welcome surprise for visitors while thousands of daffodils add some spring cheer after the long winter months. Afterwards, unwind in the Avoca Terrace Café with tea and a cake or two! See www.powerscourt.com/events for more information.
