With thanks to Kerry Gordon for this review!
“As a long time visitor to Powerscourt Gardens it was interesting to take a guided tour with Sara Waldburg, an expert on all things houses, castles and gardens in Ireland!
A charming host she met our amiable and chatty group with a surprise up her sleeve that – Alex Slazenger, one of the younger generation of the Slazenger family that owns Powerscourt Estate – was to join us. Alex turned out to be great fun and one of the gardening team so his insight, especially about the herbaceous border, was very interesting.
As you can see from my photo blog we wound our way around the Estate looking at the breathtaking array of statues, gates and fountains carefully picked by the Wingfield Family.
The Powerscourt blog is full of wonderful historical information and you can read the fascinating story of how this wondrous garden is now here for us to enjoy.
Information on the statues can be found here: https://powerscourt.com/gardens/statuary
