An enigma wrapping inside a mystery, if Wicklow is the garden of Ireland, what does that make the awe-inspiring, all-blooming, all-powerful Powerscourt…?
The garden of the garden of Ireland…?
Whatever the answer to that particular riddle, the good news is, when it comes to exploring the most beautiful patch of this rather beautiful county of ours, your lockdown prayers have been answered. From Monday, June 8th, Powerscourt Gardens & Waterfall is back on the menu.
Here’s the lowdown…
Firstly, to say thank you and ensure that those you need a break out in nature the most, Powerscourt is giving a 25% discount on adult or family tickets to all HSE staff from Monday to Friday. HSE employees just need to bring identification with them, and we’ll happily accommodate.
The Avoca food hall is also now open stocked with some of the best homegrown and artisan foods and products. Take-away coffee, treats and ice-cream are currently available.
There is more good news for families this summer at Powerscourt, family tickets for entry to the gardens for 2 adults and three children are just €26.00, which is a saving of €12. Entry to the Waterfall for families (includes 2 adult and 3 children) is only €16.00, which is also a saving of €7.50.
Careful consideration has been given to facilitate social distancing and safety measures at both the Gardens and the Waterfall. A list of all the safety measures and facilities are outlined on the Powerscourt website news section.
And to mark the grand reopening, those loveable, huggable Powerscourt people have put together a competition for you lucky, lucky Guide readers. Yep, there are two free Powerscourt Gardens & Waterfall Family Passes up for grabs. And all you have to do to get your greedy mitts on one is answer this rather easy-peasy question…
The Powerscourt Estate was constructed in 1741, 1841 or 1941?
Just pop your answer in the comments below, and we’ll announce the winners on Sunday, June 7th. Around teatime.
