Well worth the visit if you are in the area. Wonderful gardens beautifully laid out with
Some lovely walks. Sadly it was raining when we went which rather curtails the beauty of the place but still worth while particularly if you are into good properties and spas.

The estate is an imposing building which houses only a couple of souvenir shops. The highlight of the area is certainly the gardens. Especially the Japanese one grabs all the attention. You really find yourself in Japan with all these small ponds, wooden bridges and pagodas. It's wonderful to sit there and meditate about the beautiful scenery that surrounds you.
It takes about an hour to get to Enniskerry from O'Connell Street in Dublin, the 44 bus. You can pay directly to the bus driver when you get on, it's €3.30 one way. I recommend you to have coins so that it will be faster.
After you get off in Enniskerry, you take a walk to the estate and it's about 20 minutes.
If you feel like indulging yourself a bit, go to the Avoca food market, buy some scones and a cup of tea, go to the cafe terrace and enjoy the view - magnificent Wicklow mountains.
Besides, in Avoca shop you can buy great presents, such as tea collections, packets of loose tea, coffee, biscuits, marmalade. Everything is very tasty.
Enjoy your visit!

We took our parents and adult daughters to Powerscourt and were immediately enveloped into the grand beauty and exquisite intricacy of the gardens. Taking about 2 hours to stroll, stop, admire, and photograph the various parts of the gardens, we enjoyed an unseasonably warm May day in Ireland, with temps around 70'F. It is a lovely spot--and we WILL be BACK...and plan to stay at the Autograph Hotel near the house.

We visited on a beautiful day, our second in Ireland. The gardens took full advantage of the day, and showed extremely well. The walk was a bit confusing, in trying to follow the map, but everything was so beautiful it didn't seem so awful to revisit things. The family story is quite interesting, and several were on site, working.

My family and I have visited the estate many times in the past 10 years, and always enjoyed the views and experience. However the avoca cafe inside is ludicrously expensive. €7.45 for a small bowl of soup and slice of bread, €3.60 for a small filter coffee, €3.75 for an americano! Already having spent €16 for 2 people to gain entry to the gardens, I find this excessive and exploitative.
