When the house on the Powerscourt property was rebuilt in the decade after 1731, the grounds were also rebuilt and remodeled. The desire was to create a wider landscape, and boy was that accomplished! There are hundreds of trees and flowers. There are many gardens within the property, including an Italian garden, a Japanese garden, A Tower Valley and even a Pet Cemetery! We came here straight from the airport when we landed in Dublin. There’s a cute cafe on the grounds for lunch.
