Description

Powerscourt and Dublin City with Private TransportationThis Dublin tour with private transportation begins with a drive in a private, air-conditioned vehicle through south county Dublin as you travel towards County Wicklow. Powerscourt Estate is situated just an hour's drive outside Dublin with the scenic backdrop of the Sugarloaf Mountain. You will enjoy the freedom to explore the impressive estate on your own. Powerscourt Estate has been welcoming visitors for more than 50 years and offers a magnificent example of an aristocratic garden. The gardens were laid out by Daniel Robertson, who was inspired by the Villa Butera in Sicily. The most striking features are the circular pond and the fountain flanked by winged Pegasi, elaborate ironwork, Italian statuary and the double staircase with the Aeolus fountain and Italianate patterned ramps.From the gardens, you'll be able to see the lovely Richard Castle's Palladian mansion, which was destroyed by fire in 1974. In recent years Powerscourt has re-roofed the house, and you will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition tracing the origin of the house through the tragic fire to its ongoing re-construction. You will also have time to visit a craft and gift shop in the grounds. You will spend about 2 hours enjoying the pleasant atmosphere at Powerscourt.Next you'll travel to the city of Dublin, for a one hour city orientation drive, where you'll get to see Dublin's highlights. Originally founded as a Viking settlement during the 9th century, Dublin has grown over time to become the capital of the Republic of Ireland. Dublin offers a fascinating blend of old and new, with a significant amount of modern development over the past decade blended with landmarks that are hundreds of years old. After your driving tour of Dublin, you will have approximately 2 hours free time for lunch on your own, personal exploration, and shopping.Please Note: The visit to Powerscourt is self-guided.
