We love to use Blue Book properties in Ireland! Here are some great images of some of the places we visit and stay, incorporating the love of historic houses, hotels and gardens to give you, the traveler a real taste of Ireland!
We hope you can join us on tour!
Gardens in Ireland consist of some very formal gardens such as Powerscourt Gardens in County Wicklow, to Wild Gardens that so many in Ireland fashioned themselves after in Robinson's book The Wild Garden written in 1870 and republished in an expanded version in 2009 by Richard Darke. On tour we try and explore all sorts of gardens that span Ireland in private back gardens like Val & Helen Dillon's to the grandiose of such great estates as Birr Castle and making sure you see the real back roads of Ireland, exploring as much as we can and allowing you time to see the different gardens at their best.
In the works are garden tours that go in depth for you the discerning traveler that wants to learn and enjoy Ireland and the British Isles at its best.
In 2015 we will be taking a look in depth at historic gardens in Ireland. This is two week tour of gardens and historic houses. We will visit off the beaten path properties, chat with the owners of the houses and gardens and spending our evenings in these historic places so steeped in Irish history. May 22-31, 2015 Tour limited to 12 persons.
In 2017 we will be embarking on a two week trip to explore the Chelsea Garden Show as well as ramble up to the Lakelands to explore Marta McDowell's view of Beatrix Potter's gardens. Her latest book available through Timber Press, Beatrix Potter's Gardening Life, is just out and we're excited to be exploring this beautiful part of England. Who knows! We might even persuade Marta to travel with us! Check back for updates!
