How many visitors to Ireland make Powerscourt Gardens and Hotel County Wicklow one of their top must see attractions?
Dig deep into the history of this amazing Manor House at Powerscourt and discover The Wingfield Family holders of the title Viscount Powerscourt. They were one of the wealthiest and most powerful families in Ireland. Their estates in Dublin, TYRONE, Wexford and Wicklow totalled over 60,000 acres.
While I too visit the Powerscourt Gardens and enjoy the grandeur of the historical Manor House - Powerscourt Hotel it’s that link with the quiet village of Benburb, County Tyrone that interests me.
Of course I am interested, not only am I a Tourist Guide for Northern Ireland, I live just 30 minutes away from Benburb!
