We traveled in mid-October in order to see the gardens. Ritz-Carlton gave us a lovely suite with views of gardens, heliport and Sugar Loaf Mountain. Everyone was friendly and courteous. Room was spacious with white robes and slippers that was handy for trips to lovely Swarovski-designed indoor pool [glad we took our swimsuits, especially for whirlpool by pool]. You can walk the grounds--Secret Garden etc. Nearby is Powerscourt Estate, now a lovely store [Avoca] and furniture store upstairs and cafe. The cafe overlooks the grounds. Good food and the grounds are a must-see and take about an hour to walk. Flowers, lovely roses, were still in bloom and Japanese maples were lovely. From the Ritz. ask Concierge for River Walk pass to Powerscourt Estate and experience a lovely walk for about 90 minutes or take free bikes from hotel . On your return, check out the Powerscourt Garden Pavilion for reasonable gifts and of course, go to the cafe for tea and dessert.
The Ritz has 3 restaurants--Gordon Ramsey, Sugar Loaf and Murphy's Pub. Breakfast is only at Ramsey's or the Sugar Loaf Lounge. Ask for menus for Sugar Loaf and Murphy's Pub [only open for dinner around 6:00.
The nearby town of Enniskerry is 5-10 minutes by car and offers restaurants and breakfast cafes--all good. See separate reviews. Ritz-Carlton offers complimentary ride to Enniskerry.
