“Luxury & relaxtion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

This really is an outstanding location. If you've got a few Euro to spare, book a suite on the top floor, with a view of the Sugar Loaf Mountain. The suites are five room heavens!

It is an expensive location, but well worth the treat. There are a few options for food at the hotel, there appears to be value if you book food with the room. We went on a Gordan Ramsey experience and had a delicious dinner in Ramsey's restaurant. With a well priced wine menu, which really surprised me.

The bar at the back of reception is expensive for food, but there is an irish themed pub (hold the paddywhackery comments!) downstairs which is not bad. The hotel is huge and very american. Think polished timer, deep carpets, white wall panels.

But it is in a beautiful location. Powerscourt House is just next door and there are shops and a garden centre there, a walk around the gardens is a must.

There is also a very well equipped gym and a pool with sauna and jacuzzi. This is a lovely place to spend the morning, its quiet and relaxing and if you forget swimwear there are pretty well priced togs etc available.

We arrived on time for check-in but the room was not ready for almost one hour, which was a little annoying. There was NO apology for the delay and whilst waiting we have a 70 euro lunch! Welcome to the Ritz Carlton! That said the place is really nice and well recommended for a luxury break.

Room service for breakfast was really good, hot food and a huge selection. Fill dining table etc setup in the sitting room by the staff.

Stayed here June 2012, despite review date below.

Room Tip: Sugar Loaf view rooms are well worth the extra money

The Riz-Carlton Powerscourt is a beautiful property that gets it right on every detail. This property lives up to the five star, Ritz-Carlton model in every way. Our room was amazing and huge, with a beautiful balcony. As other reviewers have described, the rooms have touch-screen controls for temperature, lights, etc. and a marble bath with separate tub and (spacious) shower, as well as a television in the mirror. We loved the on-site pub and enjoyed a few pints with the delightful bartenders there. Dinner at the Gordon Ramsey restaurant was delicious, as was breakfast the next morning. We did not have time to take advantage of the spa but enjoyed a tour of the beautiful facility and will certainly make time for it on our next visit.

The staff at this hotel is excellent, maintaining an atmosphere of luxury and five star service, while also being warm, welcoming, and incredibly friendly. Our only regret is that we did not have more time to spend here, as we were on a whirlwind tour of Ireland, but we will return when we can and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

My wife and I stayed 4 days here on a business retreat. We absolutely loved everything about the Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt. Our room was very comfortable and led out to a patio area that surrounded us with the beauty of Ireland. The service was impeccable and the staff were so welcoming that it was like staying with family.

Touch screen control in the room made things a little more fun. Even turning off the lights was a joy to us. The TV in the bathroom mirror was a highlight as well.

On the grounds of the Powerscourt Estate, there are so many beautiful gardens and fountains, and Powerscourt House itself, to explore. And even better than walking, you can let a golf buggy and drive along forested grounds of the estate. Its absolutely amazing.

While I did not take advantage of the spa, my wife did. She spent a half day being pampered and enjoyed every single moment.

The last thing I must mention is the breakfast each morning in Gordon Ramsey's Restaurant. A beautiful assortment of fresh fruits and locally made yogurt made my wife's day. The full Irish breakfast made mine! The food is amazing and the service just leaves you smiling.

I hope to plan a trip back to Ireland soon. And more specifically, The Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt.

Room Tip: The third floor has a patio that leads out from the rooms.

My wife, 19 year old daughter and I spent 4 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. While the front of the hotel may be a bit gaudy for some, the rooms themselves (we had a suite facing the mountains) are beautiful and very spacious. Having a second half-bath is a really nice feature. The location of the hotel in the Wicklow mountains is beautiful and yet you can be in downtown Dublin in 30 minutes (or shopping at Dundrum Town Center in 20 minutes). If you don't want to spend a lot for breakfast, you can walk over to the Avoca Cafe at the Powerscourt Estate next door and have a very nice inexpensive breakfast (or lunch). My wife and daughter raved about the Spa. The indoor pool, while in the basment, was nicely lit and a real oasis. All the staff we interacted with were very helpful. Would be thrilled to go back some day.

Spent a lovely day and night here at the weekend. The hotel is lovely, in the most gorgeous peaceful surroundings. On arrival the staff were friendly and so welcoming and continued to be so for the whole stay. The room (Mountainview Room) was huge! It was more like a suite. We choose the Dine and Rewind package and had a beautiful dinner in the Sugar Loaf lounge. The spa is also fantastic - if a little pricey. All in all 5 star luxury at great value! If I had one tiny criticism it was that the room was a tad warm and no amount of tampering with the AC control made a difference.

Visited recently for a two day break. Hotel is beautifully located & the rooms are spacious and bright. The service front of house is superb. Visited the spa, after choosing a treatment from a very limited menu, treatment was fine, and I enjoyed an hour or so in the relaxation room. However on settling the treatment bill, I was fairly annoyed to be reminded twice about the gratuity line. This has never happened before in any spa/restaurant/hairdressers that I have ever visited & I felt it was wholly unprofessional.

Spent one night at the Ritz Carlton for my 50th Birthday. From the time we arrived in reception we were treated wonderfully.

We were upgraded to a suite mountain view and it was breath taking.

The only disappointment we had was the bar food. Overall this is an amazing hotel and looking forward to returning.

Room Tip: If you can afford to upgrade to a suite do so
