We rented a car! This greatly expands our choice of adventures during this last week in Greystones. We no longer need to try to fit into the bus system out here in the country. So on Sat. we went to the local beach and just walked and took photos of a fun dog who loves to fetch the ball in the water. The next day we drove over to Powerscourt country house and gardens. This is a large country estate which is noted for its stunning landscaped gardens, which today consists of 47 acres. This is a photograph of the house. There is an Italian garden that is spectacular. Here is the fountain in the lake. It is located just behind the back of the house.Here are the terraced grass areas leading down to the lake. What a lot of grass to cut. The Japanese gardens are very picturesque. Here is a young couple enjoying the view. But it was flowers everywhere that were the main attraction. Well you can see what a stunning place it is to visit. If you are ever down this way south from Dublin be sure to add it to your itinerary.
