About the Store

Avoca at Mount Usher Gardens is a haven of beauty and tranquillity, with scenic walks and stunning views along the River Vartry.

Mount Usher Gardens Tour

An award-winning example of Robinsonian Gardens, we count ourselves very lucky to have one of our Avoca locations nestled in this stunning setting. A haven of rare beauty and tranquillity, Mount Usher Gardens was named by Monty Don as one of his favourite gardens in the world. You’ll love its relaxed informality and natural layout. Mount Usher Gardens welcomes self-guided tours or guided group tours of our gardens throughout the year.
