Gardens

Welcome to Powerscourt Gardens in County Wicklow, one of the most beautiful gardens in Ireland!

Powerscourt Gardens was ranked No.3 in the World’s Top Ten Gardens by National Geographic.

We advise a minimum of 90 minutes to make the most of your visit to the gardens.

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.
Managed by Head Gardener, Alex Slazenger and a team of four gardeners, Powerscourt Gardens were designed from 1731 onwards, with the desire to create a garden which was part of the wider surrounding landscape. Powerscourt Gardens include The Walled Gardens, The Italian Garden, The Dolphin Pond, The Japanese Gardens, Pets Cemetery and Pepperpot Tower, among other features and attractions.

Powerscourt Estate – Closure

(Effective 22.03.20)

In the interest of public safety and the absolute requirement for social distancing, we have decided to close the Estate, including the House, Gardens, River Walk and Waterfall, until further notice.

We have given the situation a great deal of thought and we understand that our visitors will be disappointed by this and we apologise for the inconvenience it may cause, particularly when being outside in nature is beneficial for mental and physical health.

At this time, we all have a social responsibility, including Powerscourt Estate, to minimise any harm to our friends, colleagues, and families.  We will be reviewing this situation on an ongoing basis.  Please keep an eye on the News Section of our website and social media for updates.

Thank you for your understanding and patience and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Estate before not too long.  We hope you and your families are keeping safe.

Best wishes,

Powerscourt Management
