“Just like a Palace, beautiful scenery and excellent service!”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

We went there as a anniversary trip which was made into such a great experience thanks to the many people at this hotel.We were kind of skeptical with the hotel being 30 min from city center Dublin at first. Once we stepped into the hotel, the grandeur assured us of our pick. After a long flight and a scary manual car wrong side driving trip from the airport, we arrived at the Powerscourt Gardens. The area is beautiful with palace like gardens, beautiful scenery and a great waterfall just minutes away from your retreat. If you want to relax this is a great place to go!

People - Every person we met was very wary of your needs and wanted to please you. The information desk helped us book reservations for the city, a Broadway play(he even paid with his credit card which had to be local and charged our room for it) as well as driving directions, plans and times for every road trip we took. They were absolutely amazing!

Food - They have the BEST fish and chips I've ever had! I had them three days out of my 7 day stay. The other restaurants were also amazing and first class. They even have their own traditional PUB inside the hotel.

Rooms - We got a deal for the suite and fell in love with the room. His and hers closets, great shower with hidden behind mirror tv, tv room and bedroom. Everything was automated from the comfort of where you were. Very homey room which we did not want to leave!

Amenities - Being next to the gardens(part of it) we would have thought it would be included in the hotel. Not a huge charge but it would be a great amenity for guests. Still, gardens were beautiful and worth every cent. The SPA was incredible! We had a couples massage after seeing the pool which is lighted like a black sky with twinkling stars at the bottom of the pool. Just being there gave you a sensational feeling. My wife took a regular massage and I took a special Irish stick massage.... ( I would keep to the traditional, it was a little too different at times.) They had aromatherapy to your liking and the relaxing jacuzzi private suite with a view was second to none. DEFINITELY recommend using the spa area!

Overall, the surroundings were beautiful, the place is spectacular, food and service is great! It might be a little far away for the daily Dublin commute but great for the explorer like us. We visited a few different cities daily and went back to our comfy room.

Room Tip: Suites are spectacular, look for rooms with a front garden view, not the parking area.

We have been here a few times for a quiet, convenient, getaway from the city. We've always enjoyed it, nice rooms, good food, and beautiful surroundings. It's a bit pricey, but I'm sure we'll be back again.

We stayed here on first night of our honeymoon when they found out they went out of there way to make extra special for us. The location is ideal with great walks scenery and you are only 30min from Dublin City centre.for an upmarket hotel it is so relaxed. The staff are very genuine and very helpfull. The food in restaurant is to die for and I couldn't believe how responsible it was. The spa is a great experience and pool area is such a relaxing spot. Well worth a stay

I've stayed at numerous hotels and have rarely left and immediately booked for a return visit. I loved the peace and relaxation. There were so many beautiful and thoughtful touches that I can't recommend it highly enough. The food was fantastic and of an incredibly high standard. The rooms were large, clean and the bathrooms were fantastic. The spa and hotel is one of the best and staff immediately put you at ease. Wonderful location so peaceful but within close proximity to Dublin, Bray etc.

Room Tip: Try the Skia restaurant - we ate things we normally wouldn't dream of were blown away!!

We stayed in February 2014, our party of two adults and four young children.

Our inter-connecting rooms were the best we have ever stayed in, extremely spacious, and our children availed of the 'tent and torch' in-room camping experience, which gave them a great thrill.

Breakfast was excellent in quality. It is buffet style, with hot food also available to order. I felt the staff could have been a tiny bit more pro-active in assisting me, when I arrived down for breakfast with four children under the age of eight, including a baby - while I appreciate buffets require guests to serve themselves, someone should have offered to help me carry the children's juices and cereals to the table, or provided a tray for me to do it myself.

The fine-dining restaurant is very good, with knowledgeable staff and an excellent wine list.

Areas for improvement are as follows:
- The children were made feel very welcome, but a little more thought is required for the lounge menu to offer smaller, less expensive options for children.
- The children's play-room, which is not supervised (which is fine), also needs work - no ball for the ping-pong table; ragged dress-up costumes which have seen better days.
- We ordered room service for the children one evening, as we were getting a babysitter so we could have a birthday dinner for two in the restaurant. No arrangement was made to collect the food trolley before the children went to sleep, so it was still there the next morning - not nice to wake up with food still in the room.

However, our overall experience was very good, and we will likely return in the Autumn. It would be great to see these small items addressed.

Dear CatherinePlus5,

Many thanks for taking the time to write this review of your stay.

I am delighted that the bedrooms were to your satisfaction and that your children enjoyed the 'tent and torch' experience. It is also nice to hear that you enjoyed the quality and service in Sika for the dinner - I hope it made for an enjoyable birthday experience!

Many thanks as well for your constructive feedback, which you can rest assured has been taken on board.

We are currently retraining our staff and highlighting the importance of customer service - this is with regard to both our breakfast offering and the in room dining service.
Since your stay in February, our Kids Room has been given a makeover, and I hope that when you return in the Autumn you will notice the changes.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to Powerscourt.

Warm Regards,
David Webster

This is a gem of a luxury hotel south of Dublin. It is off the beaten path but worth the trip. From the moment we arrived we were treated warmly and every accommodation was made to make us welcome. The staff was simply outstanding during our entire trip. The lobby is elegant and the views of the surrounding countryside were spellbinding. Our room was spotless and well kept for our entire visit. There a two restaurants and a pub. We were given vouchers for 1/2 off the breakfast buffet. There is also a wonderful spa and a pool that you have to see. The desk and the concierge helped us by suggesting some ways to enjoy our visit. We had rented a car and the concierge mapped out a trip around County Wicklow that turned out to be wonderful. hey booked the rail and bus tour for us to go to the west and see the Cliffs of Moher and drove us into Enniskerry and picked us up when we went into the village. Everything was friendly yet very professional. This is not some bed and breakfast, it is a luxury hotel so be prepared to spend money for food and drinks. That being said, it is worth every penny. We will return - without a doubt.
