1pm - 3pm : Long Stone Four Saxophone Quartet in Mount Usher Courtyard

Previous events at Mount Usher Gardens have included “Music at Mount Usher”, greeted and enjoyed by locals and visitors alike, it was a great success. Even the true Irish summer didn’t dampen the sound or the spirit, and the music played on with some of Irelands most talented musicians who performed in the gardens every Saturday over the months of July and August. String Quartets, Jazz Trios, Champion Saxophonists, Harpists, Guitarist and Flautists all took part in Mount Usher’s Summer Music Festival.

Mount Usher Gardens is one of the great gardens of the world and truly a memorable day out for the entire family. Situated in the village of Ashford, just 35 minutes on the N11 from Dublin, and close to Bray, Wicklow and Arklow towns, it is only a stones throw from the historic site of Glendalough, and a perfect destination lunch stop when visiting the Wicklow mountains or on your journey to or from the South.
