Ireland is not a mountainous country so no complaints that the tallest waterfall on the island is often just a trickle, but the entry fee is a bit steep. That said, the area is pretty and there are great walks to be had and the...More

The Powerscourt Waterfall is an amazing sight! As Ireland’s tallest waterfall it is a must see if visiting Wicklow. There is a cost - €6 per person, but there is opportunity to spend the day within the grounds. The only downside is that the cafe...More

Went here as we were on a scenic drive down south of Wicklow mountains. Entrance fee is €6 per person, but fair I would say. The area is very nice for some hiking, strolling, picknicking. There was also a kiosk to buy some drinks &...More

I’d been recommend going here by a family member and I’m so glad I took their advice. It was beautiful. It was peaceful. It was a lovely walk around. For 6€ you can’t go wrong. Will be back soon with the dog!

It does not take more than a day or so for the water to percolate into the Dargle River which then falls in the Powerscourt Waterfall. This is one of the grandest waterfalls in Ireland (a trickle compare with Norway or America's or Brazils falls)....More

Overall we enjoyed our visit, but we probably wouldn't make the effort to return. When we went, the falls were running light to moderate, so they weren't all that dramatic. Still, the location is lovely, and getting to the falls is a breeze (there's a...More

We certainly enjoyed the visit. It was easy to park and to get around to walk. One of our party uses a cane and she did well. A six Euro fee allows access. I don’t mind the charge as the grounds are well cared for....More

Spectacular view. You can get pretty close and can walk right down to the stream at the bottom. I was disappointed that you have to pay to see it, but if that goes towards upkeep of the ground, then so be it. Definitely worth seeing.
