Dublin Shore Excursion - This tour visits the interesting Powerscourt Estate and Gardens located outside of Dublin. Then in the afternoon your enjoy a short city tour of Dublin and plenty of free time. Its a great option for repeat visitors to Dublin.

After meeting your guide you drive to County Wicklow and the Powerscourt Estate which is situated with the backdrop of the Sugarloaf Mountain. Powerscourt is owned by the Slazenger family and has been welcoming visitors for more than 50 years. Powerscourt is a magnificent example of an aristocratic garden laid out with taste and imagination with a backdrop of Richard Castle's Palladian mansion, which was destroyed by fire in 1974.

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. In recent years Powerscourt has re-roofed the house and you will have the opportunity of visiting the exhibition of the house ‰ŰŇ tracing the origin of the house to the tragic fire that destroyed it in the early 1970‰ŰŞs to its ongoing re-construction of the house.

After visiting the house and gardens you have a short visit to the craft and gift shop.

This afternoon you return to Dublin to enjoy a city tour include seeing some of the top sites including the famous Doors of Dublin, the River Liffey, the Customs House, O'Connell Street, the GPO (General Post office), the Four Courts, and the city's Georgian area, including Merrion Square, Fitzwilliam Square, St. Stephen's Green, and Leinster House (National Parliament Building).
