The lush green promise of Spring.

Mount Usher Garden | Ireland Chauffeur Travel

Mount Usher Gardens, County Wicklow

Dating from as far back as 1860, Mount Usher Gardens are an ever-changing panoply of colors and textures enhanced by wafting scents as one season changes to another. The gardens have many plant species and trees including rhododendrons, magnolias, camellias, eucryphia and shrubs. Tucked away in County Wicklow, Mount Usher was designed by William Robinson. Inspired by Shakespeare’s line “the art itself is nature”, Robinson created an informal garden experience that uses a mix of native and tropical plants. In addition to the beautifully landscaped gardens, Mount Usher offers a full menu of locally sourced ingredients in the Avoca Garden Café, as well as a shopping outlet in the nearby courtyard.

The Irish National Stud & Gardens, County Kildare Irish National Stud & Gardens | Ireland Chauffeur Travel

In the heart of the thoroughbred county, County Kildare, is the Irish National Stud & Gardens, home to magnificent horses and sumptuous gardens. The Japanese Gardens, described as one of the finest in Europe, were devised by the stud’s eccentric founder Colonel William Walker and laid out by Japanese master horticulturist Tassa Eida and his son, Minoru.  Through trees, plants, flowers, lawns, rocks and water, the garden symbolizes the ‘Life of Man’. The stud is also home to the wild St Fiachra’s Garden, a feast for the eyes and the senses. The stud features as part of the Horse Country Tour, a must for all animal lovers.
