“Incredibly lovely property”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Stayed here for two nights using Marriott rewards points. We were blown away by the beauty of the property. Our room was a king bed suite that faced the mountains. It was a very large and luxurious suite, 1 1/2 bathrooms, kitchen, living room, lovely bedroom and an incredible master bath. It is probably the most high end place We have stayed. The spa and pool are incredible as well, the pictures on the website do not do justice to the pool. Would definitely spend the money to eat at Gordon Ramsey restaurant, we loved it, however, it was pricey. McGills was a cute pub. The regular restaurant was also quite good. Highly, highly recommend this beautiful place. It is out in the country, very peaceful and relaxing.

My husband and I only live a short distance away, but with two little boys, one with special needs, we wanted to take some time out and also, not be too far away. Luckily for us, this hotel fitted the bill perfectly!

The welcome team were the most professional I have ever came across worldwide, and not in a cheesy way either, something that grates on me, when asked what room we had, he pleasantly informed us that there was an upgrade made and Fiachra brought us to our suite. Gorgeous. The bed was blissful and I must say, the temperature of the room was amazing.

We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, Hammam steam room and would have liked the chill out rooms upstairs with infinity pools etc, but the lady at the desk informed us that since they were split by sex, my husband and I would have to enjoy them apart, so we opted against for the extra money.

Unfortunately, both the Gordon Ramsey resto and the treatment rooms were fully booked when we arrived, so we ate in mcgills pub, which was surprisingly delicious and a fraction of the cost of the restaurant. I don't think I would bother eating in the restaurant next time either!

Breakfast was heavenly. The only reason this hotel didn't get five stars from me was due to the price of the extras....music in the rooms was being charged at €5.50 and the radio wasn't tuned in correctly, so left us with no alternative. You could spend a lot of ,emy here and at times.things were very expensive.

We spent our morning discussing dates to return! In the words of Arnold S.....I'll be back!

If you feel yourself in need of a little bit of relaxation and quiet time then this is a good place to go. We stayed here for just one night and it was fabulous. A beautiful room ... Very spacious with private balcony/patio area, huge walk in wardrobe and lovely bathroom. Everything was spotless. We had midday coffee and scones which were freshly baked and gorgeous. Dinner that evening was also gorgeous. It's hard to describe the wonderful breakfast, you definitely wouldn't leave hunger. Cannot wait to return...

Just returned from a two week stay in Ireland with 4 of my girlfriends. We concluded our trip with a three day two night stay at the Ritz Carlton at Powerscourt. I cant say enough good things about our stay. From the minute the car arrives you are treated like celebrities. I don't know how they do it but they seem to know every guest by name. The facility, and surroundings are just gorgeous. A truly nice surprise awaited us upon check in - we were upgraded to two suites at no additional charge. We had a delicious dinner at Gordon Ramsey and wonderful pub fare at McGills. We were on a bed and breakfast package so breakfast was also included and they had everything and anything you could ask for. All top of the line. The location made it the perfect spot to walk over to Powerscourt gardens. The Ritz even gave us a free ride to the little town center - then cam back and picked us up. It was the perfect stay for the four of us and I would recommend it highly. It was certainly worth every penny.

Room Tip: Face Sugarloaf Mountain. We stayed in 338 and 346. Lovely rooms with balconies.

Our hotel stay took place during the last week in March, 2013. Our suite was spacious, luxurious and impeccable. The bathroom is a large with floor to ceiling marble. It is equipped with 2 sinks, plenty of storage for towels and personal hygiene products, a hair dryer (nicely hidden in the vanity, a large glass mirror with built-on television, separate toilet room with glass door, separate shower with glass door and a 2-person Jacuzzi tub. The floors are always warm due to below ground heater. This was my favorite bathroom feature. There is nothing more satisfying than being able to walk barefoot after your shower or long, cold day outdoors. Outside of the bathroom was a dressing room with floor to ceiling storage and closet space. The sitting room was beautifully decorated with a desk and chair (wifi included) as well as a large couch, coffee table, end tables, Queen Anne chairs, flat screen television and table. The bedroom was at the opposite end and separate by two wood-sliding pocket doors. Our room had two double beds. Each bed was roomy enough for one adult and a child. In this room is also a dresser and television as well as a night stand. Curtains, temperature and lighting were all controlled electronically via digital controls located at the entrance, living room and bedroom. This took a day or two to completely understand but then we caught on. The breakfast buffet at the Gordon Ramsay restaurant is absolutely delicious! The service was excellent and our servers were friendly and courteous. We would enjoy a filling meal in the morning and were offered a few snacks for our daily travels. This held us over until we had a late lunch or early dinner. Although we did not have dinner at the Gordon Ramsay, we did visit McGills. Unfortunately, the service was terrible. Our server had a terrible attitude and disposition. The food and drink were just average. The Powerscourt Gardens are a must-see. The grounds are so beautiful. Even in the midst of bitter-cold, snowy days, it was just breathtaking. Take the time (half day recommended) to enjoy the sites of Powerscourt Gardens and its surroundings. You will not be disappointed. Overall, our experience was fantastic.

Gorgeous hotel set in beautiful surroundings. Stayed here for one night for my birthday. It's pricey but worth it. We stayed in a suite and it was well worth the extra money with two bathrooms, separate living room, dressing room and spacious bedroom giving the feeling of real luxury. Given the high price tag I would have expected complimentary water and better quality tea & coffee. Having told them I was celebrating my birthday they put a card and hand made chocolates into the room which was a nice touch. The only real negative was the price of a cappuccino in the sugar loaf lounge... e5.30 for what was only an average coffee at best. We were also able to use the pool after checkout which was great, well worth a visit. Can't wait to return!

We had a great stay at this hotel. As a Marriott Platinum member we were upgraded to a fantastic suite with a private patio. The room was immaculate and the furnishings top of the line. The staff was courteous and most helpful. This is a nice stroll from Powerscourt House and within an easy drive (5 minutes) of Irelands highest waterfall. The staff was great with all directions to the local sites as well as our trip to Glendalough the next day (they recommended a more scenic route).
As for the restaurant. While we found the food quite good the service left much to be desired. They brought my wife a Manhattan when we ordered a Cosmo, and they rushed our appetizer even though I told them we wanted to enjoy our cocktails. All in all 3 STAR service.
As a side note I saw a small article in one of the Irish newspapers that the Hotel has been bought by Innerstate Hotels and will no longer be a Ritz starting in October, so if you are planning to travel on points or enjoy your upgrades you should keep that in mind.
