The waterfall was beautiful and the setting picturesque. Because it was pouring when we visited, we didn't really take advantage of all the site had to offer. In better weather, it would be nice to do some walking along the area surrounding the falls. There were quite a few very inviting playgrounds for children. If I had young children, I... More

The adventure of getting to the waterfall begins with the drive. You drive down some fun, winding roads to get to it - it is County Wicklow after all!! There is a nominal charge to see the waterfall, but it is definitely worth it. It is a lovely view. There are picnic tables in the park, so I recommend packing... More

The journey to Powerscourt Waterfall takes you through some of Wicklow's absolutely beautiful countryside-there IS a very good reason why this county is called the garden of Ireland! As you approach the waterfall itself, the panoramic views over the hills of Wickliw are simply breathtaking. Wonderful ancient trees line the drive and when you arrive at the waterfall itself you...

It's ok for a quick look, but not worth the entrance fee. At €16 for a family it's a lot for what really is a look at nice waterfall. There's also a pretty good play area and cafe but you hardly have to come to a waterfall for that. We saw one couple who drove up, got out and had... More

Entrance fee was a little high, just to see a waterfall. Not much I can add, except the drive to get to the area was very nice, but typical Ireland with the very narrow and winding roads.

Nice but not spectacular. A scene in some classic landscape paintings and place for the little ones to run and play. For 5 Euro it is nice for a picnic with modern bathroom facilities and a snack bar.

Gotta love the waterfall, especially after a good bout of rainfall. It is spectacular and the walks around it are great for adults and kids. It's just a terrific place for a family picnic with loads of space for the kids to run about and play games. Well worth a visit.
