Powers court Gardens. The beautiful estate of Powerscourt lies in the heart of the Wicklow Hills near the village of Enniskerry, 12 miles south of Dublin. Its 34,000 acres including plantations, shrubberies, deer herds and a magnificent waterfall attract thousands of visitors each year. The battle scenes of the film "Henry V" were taken in the grounds. The ornate gardens close to the residence have been added to by generations of the family. The front terraces were designed by a Mr. Daniel Robertson.
