On a recent coach tour we paid a visit to the Powerscourt Estate. We had absolutely no problems taking in such a large group (although it would have been more helpful on our part had we had pre-booked) and all the staff were warm and friendly.
The gardens are beautiful. It is hard to believe how much hard work originally went into their landscaping. They are very elegant and graceful and a haven of tranquility with beautiful views. What a shame that at the time of our visit we just had to use our imaginations to see the colours that must be there when flowers are in full bloom later in the year.
No need to wear walking boots, the paths are good (although gravel as you go away from the House) and the steps can be avoided if you have a pram or wheelchair or difficulty walking.
We visited the Dolls House Museum within the main House. There is an extra charge for this, but it is worth it. I think the aisles are perhaps a little narrow for wheelchairs/prams, but I may be wrong. Best to check.
Had a coffee and cake in the tea rooms - Wow!!! Daughters were jealous when they saw the photos.
