A day trip to Powerscourt Gardens as part of AETS conference

MNMT - Dublin

As part of the 2nd AET Symposium on SMART and ACSM Manufacturing, the delegates and the MNMT-Dublin members visited Powerscourt Garden as a one day trip. Powerscourt Gardens is in County Wicklow, one of the most beautiful gardens in Ireland! Powerscourt Gardens were recently voted No.3 in the World’s Top Ten Gardens by National Geographic.The Gardens stretch over 47 acres and offer visitors a sublime blend of formal gardens, sweeping terraces, statues and ornamental lakes, secret hollows and rambling walks. Managed by Head Gardener, Alex Slazenger and a team of four gardeners, Powerscourt Gardens were designed from 1731 onwards, with the desire to create a garden which was part of the wider surrounding landscape. Powerscourt Gardens include The Walled Gardens, The Italian Garden, The Dolphin Pond, The Japanese Gardens, Pets Cemetery and Pepperpot Tower, among other features and attractions (Courtesy: https://powerscourt.com/gardens).

The trip was mesmerising and was a day break from all the research activities. Everyone enjoyed the trip and had lots of fun.
