Club Outing – Mount Usher, County Wicklow

Created by four generations of the Walpole family beginning in 1868, Mount Usher is recognised at home and abroad as one of the earliest and finest examples of a ‘Robinsonian’ garden. Extending to 22 acres, it combines an unrivalled collection of trees and shrubs with inspirational floral planting schemes along both sides of the River Vartry. There is an ever-changing panoply of colours and textures accompanying every season. We provide you with a detailed tree trail guide to help locate the many ‘show-stoppers’ as you wander around. The gardens have been cultivated entirely by organic principles since 1980.

Mount Usher Gardens, with its Avoca Garden Café and Courtyard Shops, is situated in the village of Ashford, just 35 minutes south of Dublin city.

Please note: entrance fee applies

We will meet in the courtyard at 10.30 a.m.
