the count’s garden

Built in the eighteenth century, Powerscourt Estate embodies the height of fashion in the eighteenth-century. With its grand manor, tiered gardens, and wooded estate, it comes as no surprise that the 2002 film adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo would be filmed here. I discovered this fact after Kelly and I had visited the estate during our holiday in Ireland. We were back in Oklahoma, watching the movie with our housemates, when I exclaimed, “Wait, we’ve been there!” Kelly didn’t believe me. We watched until the credits listed the film locations and then looked up Powerscourt Estate. We had in fact been there, in the Count of Monte Cristo’s garden.
