Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 9 July 2009

The Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt, County Wicklow Ireland is offering guests the opportunity to see more of the historic landscape in Powerscourt Estate with exclusive access to a beautiful river walk along the River Dargle.

The river walk road was built from 1867 to 1869 to enable the 7th Viscount of Powerscourt and his family to drive their horse and carriage to the Waterfall along the river.

Guests can enjoy the unspoilt landscape, rare species of trees and a walk in the woodland along the river which boasts to have some of the best salmon and sea trout on the east coast of Ireland.

The Powerscourt Estate is steeped in history and this walk gives visitors even more insight into the past as visitors walk past both the Middle gate Lodge and the Golden Gate Lodge.

The Middle Gate Lodge was built beside the new iron bridge in 1868 and this was where traditionally the Estate Forrester lived and is also the point where the Glencree River meets the Dargle River.

The Golden Gate Lodge was built in 1854 by the Marquis of Londonderry, who was the 7th Viscount’s stepfather. The Golden Gates were exhibited in Paris at the Great Exhibition in 1867 and bought by the 7th Viscount in 1869. This part of the Estate has one of the best collections of conifers in the country which were planted in 1870 after the river walk was complete. Included in the collection are Douglas fir, Western red cedar, Noble fir and Giant redwood amongst others. Some are still growing and many are the tallest trees of their species in the country.

In addition to special room packages, gourmet picnic baskets are available to guests who would like to explore the countryside and stop for a picnic along the way on this scenic route. Guests can choose from delicious options such as traditional Irish smoked salmon and brown bread, creamy Colcannon soup, Slaney Valley lamb chops with potato mousseline, home made Paté with pickles and horseradish cream and Irish Guinness beef pie. There is also a children’s option and all picnics come pre-packed in custom-designed baskets.
