What could be more beautiful than the sight of some 10,000 tulips floating in the breeze at Powerscourt House & Gardens in Ireland’s County Wicklow.

Lift to all floors.

Day One

We travel across to Holyhead for our Irish Sea crossing to Dublin Port, and then continue on to County Wicklow and the Summerhill House Hotel at Enniskerry where we stay for the next four nights. Enjoy some welcome tea & coffee on our arrival.


Day Two

This morning a short drive will take us to the nearby Powerscourt Estate to see the spectacular Tulip Festival and the beautiful 18th Century mansion set beneath the backdrop of the Great Sugarloaf Mountain. Gardeners will have been selecting both favourite and unusual tulip varieties, planning the layout and colour schemes and of course, tending to the bulbs to ensure there is a beautiful display. Take a walk in the grounds and enjoy the tulips at various points in the magnificent formal gardens that incorporate sweeping terraces, ornamental lakes and an exquisite Japanese-style hideaway. We return to the hotel late afternoon where an afternoon cream tea will be served.
