Was at Powerscourt Co. Wicklow years ago and the gardens were beautiful, even though the main house was just a shell after a fire gutted it.
Not sure about estate records but there should be lots about Powerscourt online.

Will be interested to hear how you get on. The gardens themselves are well worth the visit and the house has been restored since I was there.
