Mount Usher Gardens, County Wicklow
Laid out along the banks of the River Vartry, the 20 acres of Mount Usher Gardens in Ashford, County Wicklow, have been designed in the Robinsonian style - a naturalistic approach to planting and landscaping. Approximately 5,000 different species of trees, shrub and herbaceous plants have been introduced from all parts of the globe and are planted in harmony with woodland and shade loving plants.
Like all the great gardens of Ireland, Mount Usher offers varying pleasures at different seasons of the year. Rhododendrons in spring, a blaze of summer colour and the wistful tints of autumn, all elegantly set off by the crystal waters of the river.
In addition to the Gardens, Mount Usher offers a comprehensive home produced menu in the Avoca Garden Cafe, as well as a Shopping Courtyard which is open all year round.
Located just off the main Dublin to Rosslare road (M11/N11) the gardens are within easy reach of Dublin City (50km).
