So disappointing. We walked through the antique and jewellery outlets, they were staffed by arrogant, off hand people, selling hugely over priced items. The food courts were little better; cheeky, indifferent staff. Several people need to consider their manner. I visited Powerscourt years ago and loved it, this time it was just awful.

In the centre of Dublin, just off Grafton Street this is one of Dublin's most famous buildings. Originally a townhouse for Lord Powerscourt this 18th century building was converted to a shopping centre over 30 years ago. The main house is still in tact and there are guided tours. Shops in the centre are Fashion, Jewellery and Irelands only Antique... More

A beautiful building with shops on 3 levels. I specially loved the shops on the topfloor with vintage things and jewellery and clothes of Irish designers. The service in the central hall cafe on the ground floor was not terrific.

Last week I visited the Powerscourt Townhouse shopping centre and spent a couple of very pleasant hours there . It is situated quite close to the famous Grafton Street shopping area . This Centre is relatively small compared to most shopping centres , but nevertheless is well worth a visit . It consists of a lot of small shops ,... More

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!
