This was part of a culinary tour of Dublin. We sampled different food in many of the shops and restaurants. Recommend the scones and cream

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

Paid a visit recently to the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre having read a bit about it in our local paper. Didn't really know what to expect but certainly wasn't disappointed. What a lovely mix of antique,speciality shops, and eating places nestled in a fabulous setting. Just walking around soaking up the ambience was relaxing and a nice diversion from the hustle... More

Went here specifically to see the knitting shop. Found a lovely sewing accessory shop as well as clothing shops, a tea room and local artistic flavor. Well worth seeking out!

Very impressive and in the heart of the city. Do not walk past it because you think it's too exclusive or expensive as it holds a total mix of shops, lovely cafes and is just lovely to stroll round. Absolutely beautiful place/space.
