Here you will be able to stroll around the 45 acre garden, long regarded as one of the most splendid in Europe. Continue on to Glendalough, the "Valley of the two Lakes", a 6th century monastic site of great cultural and historic interest and a renowned beauty spot of Ireland.

Set in a glaciated valley with two lakes, the 6th Century monastic remains include a superb round tower, stone churches and decorated crosses. Continuing south towards Waterford why not visit the Dunbrody Emigrant Ship in New Ross, where you will immediately be drawn to the magnificent sight of the masts and rigging of the historic emigrant ship.

Before you leave you could visit the world famous House of Waterford Crystal comprising an actual living and breathing crystal factory tour, visitor centre and opulent retail store housing the largest collection of Waterford Crystal in the world.

Why not travel north through the Knockmealdown Mountains and the famous Vee to the heritage town of Lismore?
