My husband and I loved the gardens. Took lots of great photos. Very serene and relaxing walk. Skipped the waterfall because had read that it was overpriced.

The gardens at Powerscourt may just be the best we have ever visited. The setting in the Wicklow mountains is exquisite, and every inch of the gardens is perfectly maintained and presented. If you visit only one garden in Ireland, it should be this one.
