Powerscourt Gardens

Keeping up the Irish theme, I spent a couple of days in Dublin last week, and on Tuesday 10 July visited Powerscourt Gardens.

These beautiful gardens are located about twenty miles south of Dublin in the foothills of the Wicklow mountains. The fountain in the middle of the lake is a very notable feature of these gardens.

What amazed me, in addition to the sheer beauty of the surroundings, was the fact that I almost had the gardens to myself. Very different to Kew Gardens - near where I live!
