“Dream hotel, beautiful and peaceful”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

From the moment we arrived my mother and I knew we chose the perfect place. Beautiful and serene with a classy, low-key elegance and an incredibly kind and helpful staff. Our week at the Ritz was as close as you can get to the perfect holiday. We stayed in the Mountain Suite-an elegant and comfortable space with a large all marble bath, large dressing room, living room area and separate bedroom. Our balcony outside was huge with breathtaking views. The concierge staff-Robbie and Kieran-never tired of us asking for thier opinion on where to visit in the area or where to eat, and printed off several directions to historic sites as we braved driving ourselves and rented a car (I recommend it! You get the hang of driving on the left after awhile and have the freedom to travel at will). Always smiling, relaxed and very funny, Robbie and Kieran truly seemed to enjoy what they do.

We spent a morning at the ESPA Spa together and loved the upbeat, energetic relaxed feel of it-not stuffy and overly hush-hush when you walk in. Once you are inside the treatment area of the spa, it melts into a calm and serene space. The experienced staff listened to our needs and were very kind and accomodating. Great way to spend a morning! Check out their amazing pool.

We crossed our fingers and made a reservation at Gordon Ramsay's restaraunt for a Thursday night after hearing questionable reviews. But happily, we weren't disappointed. The breast of duck was melt in your mouth, my mom ordered a watermelon salad that was unique and refreshing, the wine list is very good and our servers were charming. The total bill didn't make us keel over either-similar to high end restaurants in Seattle. My sons loved hearing that we ate at Ramsay's, his only restaurant in Ireland, after watching several of his shows : ) .

My parents are world travelers and my mom felt this was one of the best hotels she has visited, for it's beauty, great staff and service, and lovely rooms. I definitely agree! Can't wait to come back and share this with my husband and three boys! It was truly a little bit of heaven on earth.

Quick note: Ask for a pass to the River Walk-a beautiful, quiet and safe place for a long walk or run.

Also, be sure to have the hotel make a reservation for dinner at Emilia's in Enniskerry. A small, charming and very reasonably priced italian restaurant with yummy food. The Ritz will even drive you down to Emilia's and the restaurant will call the hotel when you are ready to be picked up.

And don't miss the Enniskerry antique shop, quirky and full of treasures. The owner is a gem.

Room Tip: If you use your American Express card to make reservations, ask them about a room upgrade. Mountain...

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Ritz Carlton. The positives: It was beautiful and peaceful. The room we had overlooked the grounds. It truly was paradise-verdant green everywhere. I would just stay there for the amazing bathtub. The service was superb. Everything was 5 star! If I had been with a romantic partner, I would say it would have been the perfect romantic getaway. The negatives: really only had to do with the location. It is a bit away from the city - about 40 minute drive. I drove and, being an American, driving for the first time on the wrong side of the narrow Irish roads, it was stressful. But other than that - it was an amazing, amazing place! I would absolutely stay there again, now that I'm an expert driver in Ireland :-)

Stayed over one night while down on a business trip, the service is just exceptional. The staff can't do enough for you, little things too many to quote.
Everone is friendly all do the simple tings say hello and smile. I stayed last year and breakfast was a bit lack-lustre. Thats changed breakfast matched the hotel superb
I'd love to stay more often its just a bit on the expensive side - I'm going to look for offers though!

We stayed for a family weekend. From the valet greeting our stay could not have been better. The rooms (better call them suites) were luxurious, fabulous bathrooms and balconies looking out on the magnificent Sugarloaf mountains over a truly sylvan valley. The
Gordon Ramsay restaurant was such a treat. McGills pub - what a surprise!! And then there are all the attractions of the Powerscourt Estate - manor house, speciality shopping and the Avoca terrace overlooking the famous gardens. If you are a golfer (we are not) but they have 2 golf courses. We took the hotel buggy for a trip to the river walk - such a hidden secret. Finally was the buffet breakfast on the 3rd floor terrace - so good we did not want to check out. We have stayed at many of Irelands top resorts all were good but the Ritz Carlton Powerscourt is truly great!!

Paid for a mountain view suite but didn't even have a glimpse the the mountain. First suite we got was on the ground floor with zero view. After discussions with Linus at the reception we got lobby level room with a view of nearby trees. I also asked about AMEX upgrade and was told that we already had the highest room category. Why do you sell and charge for a mountain view when you don't deliver it?

Food and wine at the lobby restaurant was good though service was the kind where you pour your wine and water yourselves but it didn't matter. At least we had the mountain view for a moment..

Downstairs pub was nice and so was the surrounding park area around the hotel. At 00:50 wedding fireworks was an added bonus right outside our window. Since we were not sleeping it was nice to watch!

Will we go back to this hotel? Most likely not since it doesn't come anywhere close to other similar Ritz-Carltons like Penha Longa in Sintra.
