Powerscourt Hotel, Autograph Collection
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Enniskerry
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 27, 2013

This hotel is one of the most beautiful in the world. The grounds are spectacular; the setting unique. It was very comfortable - the bed, the quiet, the cleanliness... all outstanding. Nothing short of a Ritz Carlton hotel experience. The staff was exceptional; very accommodating and friendly. The staff will drive you down to Eniskerry Village, or Powerscourt Manor (which is a short walk), and pick you up. I borrowed a bike and was given a nice map and directions, along with a pass to go to the beautiful Riverwalk. Truly a gorgeous property!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back of the hotel have a stunning view and terrace. Highly recommend!

I stayed here for 2 nights during a conference which was held at the hotel. The standard rooms are incredibly spacious and are very well appointed. The decor is elegant and the bathrooms very plush. I loved the TV that was seamlessly built into the bathroom mirror. It is a true luxury property and lives up to the Ritz-Carlton name. Note that it is due to lose the Ritz-Carlton branding on 1st October, I’m not sure what changes may result from this!

The hotel is in a beautiful setting surrounded by the Irish countryside. On a clear day, you can enjoy beautiful views from one side of the hotel. It is very isolated, making it a good place to relax and unwind. I liked the fact that if breakfast was included in your room rate, you could have it delivered to your room as an alternative to going down to the restaurant. Many others have commented on the positive aspects of the hotel, and I would agree for the most part. I’ll focus here on a couple of the negatives:

1) The room was not made up very well after my first night. It felt very rushed, and there were some obvious faults, such as not clearing up a used coffee mug.

2) Wifi worked very well most of the time (and it was free). However, on one night it stopped working completely, which was quite frustrating. When calling the reception desk to complain, the call went unanswered.

3) There is a tray charge of €5 for anything ordered via room service. That’s fine when ordering breakfast, etc, but this was applied even when I ordered a single bottle of water, which ended up costing me €11. This seemed excessive, although I appreciate that there are other hotels that carry out similar practises.

The above are fairly minor issues in what was otherwise an excellent stay. The first two points might be attributed to the conference being held at the hotel, which had resulted in the hotel being absolutely packed with delegates. Still, I would have expected them to be prepared for this. I did get the impression that the hotel is commonly used for conferences and other big events (the Powerscourt House right next door is ideally suited for weddings, etc). If I was staying here on leisure, I would be wary about the possibility of large groups occupying parts of the hotel.

I recently stayed at this gorgeous hotel and was beyond impressed with the overall experience. Ritz Carlton customer service at its finest! From the parking attendants, reception staff to Trish (fantastic!) in Concierge, everyone was helpful, courteous and bent over backwards to make our stay spectacular. We upgraded our room to a third floor suite- ample room for three women to move around, gather on the semi-private patio and yet allow for privacy. High tech features while maintaining elegant atmosphere(touch pad controls for lighting, window treatments, heating and cooling and iPhone docking stations) while maintaining elegant atmosphere. Courtesy use of bicycles around the area and quick rides into Enniskerry whenever we requested. Dinned at Gordon Ramsay- chocolate sphere was to die for! By far, the best hotel experience I have ever had!

Our stay at the Ritz was phenomenal! The hotel is gorgeous and the staff will go above and beyond to make your stay 110%! The staff let us borrow bikes, printed out mapquest directions for us and were very friendly! We also loved the breakfast buffet, the spa & McGills Pub! This hotel is definitely worth the price.

Rumor has it the end of September the management is changing. I wouldn't be deterred based on this single change. The hotel is a beautiful property, the gardens are amazing, rooms and fully automated with touchscreen control of drapes, lighting, and HVAC. The pool and steam room were clean and well kept. Spa staff was almost overly attentive to us, but no complaints, they were always available when we needed assistance of had questions. It's about a 30 minute drive into Dublin, so plan accordingly, but I wouldn't let that deter me from staying and this wonderful facility.

Spent three days as part of a conference group in this superb hotel with fantastic views of the Wicklow mountain's. Weather was by chance exceptional that September week end. Our room was enormous, very comfortable and had loads of luxurious mod cons. Hotels do not get much better than this. As for the golf courses, well these too were of a very high standard. Powerscourt House itself is a true Irish gem. The hotel is soon to change branding and we hope that this will in no way affect its very high standards.

Room Tip: Higher floor level Sugar Loaf Mountain view rooms are worth the additional charge.
