Mount Usher
Co. Wicklow, Ireland


Laid out along the banks of the river Vartry, Mount Usher represents the Robinsonian style i.e. informality and natural design. Trees and shrubs introduced from many parts of the world are planted in harmony with woodland and shade loving plants.

The river, with its weirs and waterfalls, in enchanted by attractive suspension bridges from which spectacular and romantic views may be enjoyed.

The Gardens cover 20 acres and comprise over 5000 different species of plants, most serving as host to a variety of birds and other wildlife.

To the professional gardener, the lover of nature or the casual tourist, a visit to Mount Usher is sure to be a memorable one.

A beautiful place to wander … just look at the colours of the trees! Quiet and peaceful with a river running right between the garden … you wander up one side and down the other…there were some very special specimens here to enjoy.
