Roses in Ireland

We just returned from five days in the Emerald Isle following a cruise, and of course gardens were on the agenda.

The roses below are all grown at Lismore Castle in County Waterford. This is an amazing estate, belonging even today to the English Duke of Devonshire. The castle isn't open to the public, but the gardens are, and they are breathtaking.

I wonder if anyone can identify these roses? They are labeled only as "rosa" or "rosa multiflora" in the plant list.

I was sure this was Munstead, but no scent, and no thorns.
