“Beautiful Accomodations/Friendly Team”
Reviewed August 7, 2009

The Ritz Carlton Powercourt is located in the country side in beautiful Wicklow Co, Ireland. My wife and I enjoyed the experience and stay which lasted 6 nights.

We spent several nights in Dublin City Centre and then came down to Wicklow and were immediately surprised by the beauty and wonderful views of the countryside. The Powerscourt Estate and surrounding area was simply gorgeous.

The rooms were spacious with amazing accomodations. The beds were very comfortable and soft and we enjoyed a balcony view with private seating area. Each and everything we needed to make our stay comfortable was in the room upon our arrival. Very clean and modern.

The resort has multiple services which were perfect for our stay. The spa is top notch and the pool and hottubs were simply elegant.

The Gordon Ramsey restaurant was top notch and surprising offered good value for the dinner we had on two different nights. Service was AAAA. We enjoyed several pints at McGills (Irish pub in hotel). Nice and clean but very pricey. Food for room service and tea room room was overpriced.

We also highly recommend traveling into Enniskerry. The Concierge will take you for free. We enjoyed great pub food at Nancy Murphy's. Live Music and relaxing scene. Emilios and Italian restaurant made us feel back home. Good wine and food.

Went for a kid free weekend. Beautiful hotel, huge rooms, but very expensive. Hotel restaurant - Gordon Ramsay - over rated. Table positions not great in restaurant, had to ask to be moved. Even though the restaurant wasnt busy we were put in a tiny alcove, there were a lot of main table available. Spa was lovely very relaxing. Staff were not overly friendly or helpful, would expect a bit more for the price. Nice to experience just the once.

I recently met a group of friends in Ireland and we hiked the Wicklow Mountains in County Wicklow south of Dublin about a hour drive. The nicest base camp ever, the Ritz Carlton Powerscourt is well located with lovely little villages nearby and awesome hiking trails. The Powerscourt gardens are a must do and the hotel has an amazing indoor pool and spa, bikes are available for free to ride the property or local roads which are a bit tight to bike on. I especially liked Glendalough for hiking, just beautiful! We had a local hiking guide and good weather throughout the trip. The Ritz PC had the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, wish I could bring it home. The food and service were also excellent. I would recommend a car or a car/driver to take you to the local places of interest of which there are many.

Powerscourt gardens themselves are magnificent. Having a Ritz on the property seemed an ideal way to start my trip. The lady doing the booking for them was incredibly friendly and kind on the internet and called to see how I was doing while there. She was excellent. The rest of the staff were distant at best. I had to keep waving my napkin at the waitress in the lobby lounge restaurant to get her attention. The staff needs training.
Polite, yes. "Hardly have time for you," no.

The outside, at the bottom of a hall, with parking lots all over, is rather commercial looking. The lobby is very grand, as you would expect at a Ritz. I was upgraded to a suite which had a pleasaant view of a mountain. Now I suppose you can call it a mountain, but it is more like a high, rather barren hill. Nice, but not dramatic, not worth paying special money to have a view of. The patio was rather sterile. The rooms had few pictures. It looked like they had not finished decorating it and was very dark. The lights seemed for decoration, not illumination. It certainly was not at all cozy.

The food was astronomically expensive. Three quarter pieces of a slice of brown bed, a hunk of salmon on each, a small salad on the plate and two small glass of Diet Coke came to the equivalent of $38. Isn't that silly? Dinners were worse. The food was fine, but no more than you would expect at any good hotel.

Very dissapointed with our stay in this hotel. It seems that the mission of the hotel is to close everything down on a Monday & Tuesday and guests and discouraged to get in the way! Firstly the heavily advertised McGills pub is closed on Mondays & Tuesday as we were told that there is very little custom during those days - a bit of chicken & egg! As they say on their website, "McGills will quench the thirst of any weary traveler" but they omit to say as long as the weary travller arrives at a convenient time to them so that they can be bothered to open up! Hardly in the famous Irish tradition.

Secondly when we were sent to the hotel lobby bar after our dinner, we were asked for last orders at 11:30pm as the residents bar does not stay open if there are not enough guests as was explained to us! We were told that we could instead get some wine brought to our room and it was also suggested to us that we order the bottle of wine directly from the bar so that we could bring the bottle & glasses up ourselves in order to not inconvenience room service!

All the little details that distinguish a proper five star establishment were missing: we only had one chair on our patio, the 65 Euro breakfast was made of rubber, the club lounge did not exist despite extensive signage to the contrary and finally we were surrounded by diners in flip flops and t-shirts at the Gordon Ramsy restaurant!

Nice location but not worth the effort or the money!

We stayed in The Ritz Carlton for 5 days on the 'Peace of mind' package and we were not dissapointed. Everything was faultless. We had garden view suite and it was beautiful. Loved the walk in closets. Would love to have one of those in my house. bathroom as other reviews georgous. We went for our first break away with our 4 and half month old baby and the staff had organised a crib in the room for us and a baby sitter Anna who was lovely for when we went out for dinner. The walks around the hotel and powerscourt suited us perfectly as we wanted quiet and relaxing. I have to note what i liked best about this hotel is although it is a luxury five star hotel, and we save up to go on these trips, (we are not full of money) but sometimes when in a 5star hotel staff are so stuffy, but not here. Staff indeed are lovely and mannerly and always speak to you. Everyone is treated the same, none of the protentious nonsence, and you feel like a guest and at home in these lovely surroundings. Oh how I wish it was home. Oh well, until my next visit, as I will be back, Thank you for a lovely stay at the Ritz Carlton Powerscourt. Highly Recommend it.

This stay was a highlight and included the tasting menu at the on site Gordon Ramsey restaurant....a must for foodies....the Powerscourt House and gardens are on the grounds and the Wicklow Mountains are worth a visit.
