Impressive up close view of the waterfall and good visitor services provided. Cost of €5.50 per person is excessive though. €4 is enough unless you charge €5.50 including a free refreshment from the cabin shop.

It is a bit off the beaten track but well worth the visit. There are lots of forest walks that we didn't have time to explore but will next time. There is a small coffee/tea shop and the playground is amazing. My kids would have loved it.

Was our first stop on our trip through Ireland and I loved it. A little bit expensive considering there is only the waterfall to see, but well worth your time.

When staying at the Powerscourt hotel, one should NOT be expected to pay to see a waterfall, and pay yet again for access to the Powerscourt estate. Money grabbing enterprise!

Nature with the sound of the water, very relaxing views. Big enough park, so you don't feel if it is too crowded. Clean facilities and cheap entrance price.

A great day out! We brought our own picnic to eat but there is a cafe on site where they sell hotdogs, coffee etc... a beautiful location and the children had fun in the playground. After we walked through the woodlands! Ample parking also, would highly recommend it

I had never seen a waterfall before and this took my breath away. On a sunny day, with friends, this was the perfect destination to sun and chill. The waterfall is beautifully clean and when the sun shines through it a beautiful spectrum of colors appear. i would definitely recommend going to see this, it is a natural wonder.

Paying to see a natural resource is madness what gives them the right to charge for this! My advice save your money and go visit any other waterfall in Ireland for free!

A nice waterfall with lovely gardens. Kids can enjoy playing here. Downside.....parking too expensive. Per person is 5.50 euros. Which is way too high.

This is a beautiful place set in a gorgeous U-shaped valley with the waterfall cascading down the cliff face. A wonderful place to spend time drinking in the scenery.
