We stayed here in mid-June 2013 and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is, of course, top quality as one would expect from a Ritz-Carlton property. The hotel grounds are magnificent. Our room was quite grand and spacious. The view was great, including the life size chess board outside. The area around the hotel is quite stunning as well. There are the gardens and waterfall not too far to visit.

The hotel is a great destination hotel especially for events such as weddings and, in fact, there was a wedding during our stay. We might not have noticed except for the loud reception and party outside our window and what we suspect were very loud guests in the room above. I'd expect the rooms to be a bit more soundproof.

If you are looking to be close to eating establishments or commerce this is not the place to stay. It was at least 20-30 minutes (if you don't get turned around) to any sort of commerce. We may try a place closer to Dublin next time but that's a matter of preference for us.

If you're looking to get away and have a romantic, secluded holiday this is a great place. We were just on a regular holiday and wanted to be a bit closer to commerce.

OMG, what an experience from once you drive in and park..and then go through the glass revolving door..the entrance is like a scene from a movie - the furnishings and woodwork, the Christmas trees and Santas grotto..its magical..hard to believe that you were in ireland. Check was flawless..the ground floor is the 4th floor? We were on the 5th floor overlooking the sugarloaf mountain..spectacular view. The whole ambiance is grandiose without being stuffy..a lovely clientele. Our room was bright and airy. Features were high tec with touchscreen for lights, heat, a/c, etc. We had a cocktail in the reception area, quite expensive but what would one expect from the standard of the place..it was a great start, We dined in the SIKA restaurant, the breads just melted in your mouth, starter of salmon and crab, monkfish and fennel main course and lemon tart dessert, lovely bottle of Merlot. Going from the restaurant to McGills bar was like an oasis in the dessert - it was as lively as a pub in Dublin City Centre..2 man band were super, talented musicians and we met lovely people and had a bit of a dance and a sing song. The beds were so so comfortable..great nights sleep. Breakfast was the best selection ever..and so fresh and tasty.a lovely experience. We did not have time to use the spa and facilities but we were shown around and we were so disappointed to be leaving so soon. We will be back for sure..The staff were very helpful and great to see so many..and willing to help. Two small things: Complimentary paper was not delivered, waitress was spraying cleaning solution wiping table clean beside people dining during dinner..not very appropriate as there were plenty of free tables. All in all, a fantastic night away in such a spectacular location..hope to return for a longer period and fit a lot more in.

Booked a tour to Ireland in Fall 2013 and included one night to spend decadent amounts of money to dine at the chef's table at Gordon Ramsay. Confirmed that the 290 Euro charge for one night included a 70 Euro credit toward dinner, nailed down the chef's table, and decided to spend the night at Powerscourt. All arrangements were confirmed 8/23/13 for 11/23/13. On September 7th, I was informed via email that the hotel would no longer be operating as a Ritz-Carlton, but that I would still pay 290 Euro for the accommodations. In addition, the restaurant would no longer be Gordon Ramsay. When, in early November, the new restaurant wrote regarding our reservations, and I requested confirmation of the chef's table, as reserved and originally confirmed, I was advised that their policy was not to reserve the chef's table for less than 6 people (that wasn't the policy when I reserved it); the hotel advised that they would not honor the 70 Euro resort credit that was part of our original package. I got no response when I inquired as to why the original terms of our hotel reservation would not be honored, and the restaurant refused to honor our original reservation, too. I found accommodations elsewhere; hence, I cannot review anything but the dismal customer service I received after making guaranteed, confirmed reservations from another continent.

Beautiful views! The rooms are perfect-- clean & luxurious. The only problem I had was when I went to go plug in my hair straightener in the converter box (like I was told would adjust the voltage to the difference ) FRIED it out. Ruined my very expensive straightener. They did refund my money. I think it was just a faulty box. So I really can't complain because I bought a new one when I got home with that money. enniskerry has such a beautiful landscape so tour the grounds! I will stay there again!

Just returned after three nights rest and relaxation. Location is stunning, rooms amazing and staff delightful. We had breakfast in the room and ate in MacGills Bar and the Sugar Loaf Lounge - all food was delicious and plenty of it. The spa was luxury itself and I had the best facial treatment ever (age-defying!). Popped down to the village of Enniskerry in the courtesy car - lovely little village, worth a look. Visited the Powerscourt House and Garden complex - adore the Avoca shop and restaurant. We were also able to do the river walk despite my partner having a bad back as the lovely concierge arranged for a comp golf buggy so we didn't have to walk down the hill and back - perfect solution. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay such a good one. Definitely be back :-)

Room Tip: We were lucky enough to have a mountain view suite as it was a special occasion but did look at Delu...

Everyone was extremely courteous, friendly and helpful. The hotel and grounds were well kept and beautiful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Very clean and quiet. We spent time at the spa, soaking in the hot tub and resting on the chaise chairs. We had breakfast everyday at the buffet, the selection was unbelievable and delicious.

Stayed at this hotel in August when it was part of the Ritz-Carlton Chain. We decided to book as we were travelling back from Dublin on our way home from a family holiday in Ireland.
initial impressions of the hotel were very good, check-in staff made children very welcome with separate check-in area for them. We were upgraded due to me being a member of Ritz-Carlton Rewards. Exec Suite over looking Sugar Loaf mountains was huge, with separate lounge, bathroom and a dressing area/room where staff had put a tent up for the children to stay in along with midnight snacks and drinks. Every aspect of Room amenities controlled by a tablet control on the wall, which the children loved and had the curtains opening and closing all the time. 3 TV's including one in the bathroom, all areas of the suite were spotlessly clean. Spa was very good and we spend a good couple of hours there before exploring the grounds where there was a kids playground and a small football pitch.
Ate in the Irish pub, which was fine, and food well cooked and presented.
Buffet Breakfast very good and food replenished regularly. Staff all very helpful and were offering to take us to see the Waterfall in the hotels Range Rover if we wanted, but we dint have time.
Would definitely go back.
