MOUNT USHER GARDENS
A short journey south along the M11 will bring you to Mount Usher Gardens. Run by Avoca, it’s a haven of rare beauty. These gardens, first planted in 1868, are situated on the curving banks of the Vartry River near Ashford, Co. Wicklow. The reputation of this ‘Robinsonian jewel’ stretches far beyond these shores. Informal planting, shaded winding paths, suspension bridges and cascading weirs make this a world-class garden. A spacious tearoom and a shopping courtyard will contribute to making your visit to Mount Usher a memorable experience.
One of the most significant monastic sites in Ireland and one of the loveliest spots in the country, centred on a 1000-year-old round tower, a ruined cathedral and the tiny church known as St Kevin’s Kitchen. Visitor Centre is not included in the tour price.
After a great day out, you will depart for your evening meal. Here you will enjoy a 4-course meal before returning home.
