The memories of Ireland 2006. - Powerscourt House and gardens

One day we decoded to take another half day tour to Powerscout house and its famous gardens. House from the 18th century is beautiful, I'll put the link if someone wants to know more of it, my memories are quite faded (at that time I had no travel diary). Powerscourt House today is home to the best of Irish design in gifts, clothes and furniture. The Avoca Terrace Café offers the finest Irish artisan, freshly prepared food. Around Powerscout House there are the golf courses.

I passed through the house, a little, and its shops, souvenir shops... but I preferred to enjoy the beauty of its gardens. It is always  lack of time when you find yourself in the beauty, I was impressed by the  Japanese garden where I spent the most of my time.

The End!

The memories of Ireland 2006. - Glendalough

Glendalough is "the valley of the two lakes"  known for its spectacular scenery, rich history, archaeology and abundant wildlife. Glendalough is a remarkable place that will still your mind, inspire your heart and fill your soul. Glendalough is home to one of the most important monastic sites in Ireland.
There is a link for official website if you want to find out more about this remarkable place.

I didn't know anything about the Glandalough before this half day trip from Dublin. We had a tour guide on this journey but  I preferred enjoy the scenes of this place than listened to the story. I remembered something but my memories are nine years old so I wouldn't dare say anything about it therefore  I put official link if someone wants to find out more.
I only remember that I've enjoyed this place.
