Great landmark and lots of space for picnics etc, nice walk around the waterfall too. Lovely place with a little shop and playground for the kids.

The waterfalls are indeed spectacular and worth a visit. The walk from the car park to the falls is very short however a bridge allows you to cross the river and walk up to the falls on either side. This is well worth doing to see the different panorama of the falls that the two sides offer. We found a dry spot by the river to stop and have a picnic. It was great having the sound of the waterfall in the distance. If anything slightly expensive for what it was.

If you're able to get to the waterfall do it, it's an amazing place. Any sign of sunshine and it'll be busy so get there early if possible. There's a small coffee shop that serves some hot food and snacks but bbq/picnic is the way to go to

This is not Ireland’s tallest waterfall. Devil’s Chimney in Leitrim/ Sligo is. €6.50 is an outrageous price to pay for a claim that is not true. How has this not reported to the ASAI for false advertising?

The entrance fee for this waterfall is an absolute disgrace. I really don't know what they're spending the money on - the only member of staff I saw was the one taking the money from us. They certainly aren't spending the money on keeping the men's bathroom clean - I had to endure a horrible smell and the hand dryer wasn't working! This seems to be a place for large groups to come together drinking for the day, and have (highly dangerous) flame barbeques next to trees. If you want to spend a good day out in Wicklow, go to Glendalough instead. There, you'll get to see spectacular views, experience lovely walks, and encounter friendly and helpful staff. Better yet - there's only a very reasonable €4 charge for parking.

Response from PowerscourtEstate, Manager at Powerscourt Waterfall
Responded Aug 20, 2020
Hi Johnw, I am disappointed to hear about your experience at the Waterfall. I have taken on board what you have said and passed it on to management, and also the management of the Kiosk who manage the toilets at the Waterfall.
