Gardens

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

Powerscourt Gardens was Voted 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.
