Wicklow – Tara’s Palace Museum
It is not widely known that Ireland has one of the world’s greatest doll’s palaces – Tara’s Palace in the Museum of Childhood in Powerscourt House And Gardens in Co. Wicklow..

Inspired by Sir Neville Wilkinson’s celebrated Titania’s Palace of 1907, Ron and Doreen McDonnell sought to recapture the spirit and purpose of Sir Neville, when they began the creation of their own masterpiece – Tara’s Palace in 1980.

Meticulously constructed, it has taken over a decade to complete and work is still ongoing. Designed and built to one-twelfth scale, it encapsulates the grandeur and elegance of Ireland’s three great 18th Century Mansions; Castletown House, Leinster House and Carton.
