Mount Usher Gardens

Mount Usher Gardens, with its Avoca Garden Café and Courtyard Shops is situated in the village of Ashford, just a 12 minute drive from our glamping site.

The gardens are world-class example of a so-called Robinsonian garden, with its relaxed informality and natural layout in a sheltered valley setting. Winding paths through the 22 acres lead you on a journey through groves and glades and on to the Vartry river banks. A collection of Eucalyptus trees and a hidden fern walk are just some of the features that will delight old and young alike. The Avoca Garden Café serves delicious meals throughout the day and The Bakery has a wide range of Avoca ready meals, freshly baked bread, fancy cakes and many other delicatessen products besides.

The Courtyard shops offer a wide variety of products and services from fashion, equestrian supplies and lovely things for the home and garden.
