    About halfway from Wicklow Town to Dublin, we took a side trip to the country manor of Powerscourt because Joan recognized the name as a Waterford crystal pattern. Once the retreat of royalty, later belonging to the Slazenger family, it has one of Europe’s finest gardens. A good stop not on our original plan.photos from our trip.
