I can't believe I've never visited this inspiring garden before - the collection of plants is amazing. Very impressive large tree and shrub collection, fantastic colours - many perrenials and shrubs in flower. Don 't miss if you're anywhere near here - takes about 1.5-2 hrs to do it justice.

We love to visit mount usher on a Sunday. We love to sit off and have food or an ice cream and crowd watch. Lovely relaxing place. The gardens are fab but you dont need to go into the gardens every time. The shopping section has lovely bits and Avoca is always tasty for lunch. One of our favourite spots.

Great place to stop by off the motorway and explore the beautiful gardens. There is lots of cafes and restaurants to eat in but they are quite expensive like the garden entrance fee.

Lovely gardens astride the Vartry river in pleasant Ashford Co Wicklow. Excellent tree trail with 80 plus specimens to see. Rhododendrons glorious. Some venerable trees. Eucalyptus especially majestic. One downside is the absence of markers/details on ground plants and shrubs. Good food at the cafe and a selection of small shops. Site is owned by Avoca Weavers and the prices... More

A few years back we decided to stop off and call into Mount Usher Gardens, it was a place we wanted to see but never really got around to it.

Definitely stop by and have a walk through the lovely garden here. After a walk you can sit down for some snacks, enjoy a beer and the sunshine (given the sun is out of course).
