Imagine discovering the lush gardens of the Emerald Isle with a native son of Eire who literally wrote the book on Irish gardens. With his great booming voice, delightful wit, and informal on-site talks, Patrick “Paddy” Bowe is the perfect companion for a jaunt through the gardens of Ireland and Northern Ireland. A Dublin-based landscape designer and architectural historian, Patrick is a sought-after lecturer both in Ireland and abroad.
Patrick will join us in May, 2015 for The Great Houses & Gardens of Northern Ireland. This fabulous eight-night trip features many special receptions and garden walks on private estates with the owners. Art, architecture, and the natural world come happily together while staying at elegant hotels in Dublin, Lough Erne, and Belfast. And the gastronomic pleasures are enhanced by the fresh produce from the Emerald Isle’s exceptional gardens.
In addition to being an engaging lecturer, Paddy is also the author of The Gardens of Ireland, The Gardens of the Caribbean, Gardens of Central Europe, and most recently, Gardens of the Roman World, published by Getty.
