The second day in Dublin saw us collecting a hire car and heading south about 25 minutes towards County Wicklow and the Mountains. We stopped first at Powerscourt Estate for some water and architectural photography. The house occupies the site of a 13th Century castle but was altered tremendously in 1731 by the Architect, Richard Cassells, to become the Family seat of the Vicounts Powerscourt. It has more recently (since 1961) been the home of the Slazenger family (of sporting goods fame) and although almost destroyed by fire in 1974, it was renovated gain in 1996. The grounds occupy around 47 acres and include Irelands highest waterfall 121m (398feet) and approximately 5-6Km from the house!
