Visited after having read good things but once I got there I was disappointed. I have been to far better shopping areas in fact there are far better in Dublin.

This shopping centre was close to our hotel. The building is really great and has been wonderfully restored with a cafe in the centre. The shops are all high end and seem to open and shut at will. not somewhere I would personally return to - Dublin has too much else to offer

I loved it here. The inside of the building is stunning. I love the layout and having to weave in and out of the boutiques, cafés and shops. There are some lovely shops but also some deeply expensive boutiques. Well worth a visit!

You can easily lose a couple of hours at Powerscourt - the range of shops is exceptional: from bridal wear and jewellery, haberdashery to toys and a dolls-hospital - all arranged around a beautiful inner courtyard filled with a selection of elegant eateries and cafés. A perfect little haven from the bustle of the high-street.

Nice place to stop for a coffee or lunch and browse the large variety of shops. Never too packed and in a nice part of Dublin.

Spending the day in Dublin we were shopping in Grafton Street when the downpour of rain began so we were hoping for some undercover shopping! Having been to Brown Thomas in Grafton Street and out of the winter rain, we needed some shelter and some coffee. We discovered Powerscourt Townhouse Centre just hidden down a little alleyway from Grafton Street... More
