5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2010

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.

We have stayed at this hotel on at least three prior occasions, and were very happy with service and accomodation.However this time , on the occasion of our anniversary, we were very disappointed. Despite paying a higher rate than usual and being members of the reward programme ( and it is certainly not cheap at the best of times! ) we ended up in the smallest room we have ever had at this hotel.Not only that, but the bed linen was torn, the air conditioning did not work, it was very noisy, no Bvlgari toiletries and despite submitting a comment card to reception, no one from the hotel asked us about our stay ( even when we were checking out!) In addition to that, it seems that the Ritz Carlton are offering much cheaper rates to American tourists and ripping off the natives.While I love to see Americans come to Ireland, this means we will not be going to the Ritz Carlton in Powerscourt again.We have stayed at many other RitzCarltons in America, and they are 5 star. This one is certainly not. Our reward points have not even been added on yet, despite two requests to front desk staff. Is this really a Ritz Carlton? We have stayed in far superior 4 star hotels such as the Brehon in Killarney. They truly look after their guests.

My wife and I spent 6 days at this hotel, and it was a wonderful experience. It is about 45 minutes from Dublin, but if you are driving yourself, expect to get lost. The hotel is nicely laid back off the main road, and when you walk inside, you are greeted by a large lobby overlooking beautiful and well maintained gardens. The room is incredible. It had to be almost 1000 square feet, and everything was immaculate. Some of the rooms had better views than ours, but the room was spacious, comfy, and having free Internet was another plus. It is very easy to sight see from this hotel, and the concierge was great. He had plenty of maps, and places to see during the day. We took the train into Dublin, which was pretty easy. We did not want to deal with the traffic and the parking in the city.
The restaurant was quite good, and also very expensive. We ate at different places in town during out stay, and I would recommend that. We even went to town each morning for a wonderful Irish breakfast.

Truly an amazing experience... This hotel was impeccable from its gorgeous location at the Powerscourt gardens to its beautiful rooms and hospitality. You are greeted at the reception area and escorted to your room, where you are guided through the workings of the electronic window treatments, hidden television, heating/air conditioning, etc. The room was incredibly spacious. I've stayed in luxury New York hotels that had less room than the closet and bathroom at the Ritz Powerscourt. There are many things to do immediately in/around the hotel. First and foremoest, are the Powerscourt Gardens. They are amazing and should not be missed. In addition, the proximity to Dublin and Glendalough make it a great home base for your Irish vacation. Our last evening of our stay at the Ritz was topped off by dinner at the Gordon Ramsay restaurant. Although it is expensive, it is equally delicious. I found this hotel as part of a package through Sceptre Tours. They offer very affordable packages -- even if at first you believe the Ritz to be beyond your financial limits! It is soooo worth the stay!

We got a fabulous deal for air fare, rental car, and a week at Powerscourt Ritz Carlton, and would highly recommend this gorgeous hotel to anyone who loves luxury. Our suite was stunning, with breathtaking views of Sugarloaf Mountain from our balcony. The staff was helpful and friendly, the food in the Sugarloaf Lounge was wonderful, and the spa amenities were luxurious and so relaxing. Treat yourself to a week here!

I have stayed here on three occasions and would stay here again. The location is spectacular and truly special . It is a 20 minute drive to Dublin and there are lots of places in the vicinity of Wicklow like Glendalough and powerscourt waterfall to visit. Wicklow is a lovely county. The hotel is comfortable but would like more variety in the food which is expensive. The spa is excellent and there is golf nearby. It is also within walking distance of Powerscourt shops and cafe which is excellent. The location is very quiet at night so if you're into nightclubs or lots of action this is not the hotel for you. Overall, I would recommend this hotel, the setting is so romantic.
