Mount Usher Garden along the banks of the River Vartry has been designed in the so-called "Robinsonian style" which uses nature rather than formal approaches to design. Trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants have been introduced from all parts of the globe and are planted in harmony with woodland and shade loving plants.

Only a short distance from Dublin, this garden makes a wonderful afternoon trip. Blending with the natural surrounding, this is a nice change of pace from the more formal gardens displayed at many of the castles in the area.
