We have visited here a couple of times. The gardens are quite lovely and well worth a stroll at any time. It is easy to get to with ample free parking on arrival. There is a good garden centre prior to getting to the main...More

My husband and I visited with our two sons, ages 7 and 12, and we all loved the beautiful grounds. The flowers are so beautiful and you can smell them outside of the gates. All of us enjoyed wandering around the house and gardens.

The grounds of Powerscourt Estate are simply beautiful. The various gardens maintained within the estate are all well maintained but the Japanese Garden is just surreal Breathtaking! However, Triton Lake, Tower Valley and the Italian Garden are also great to walk through. The view of...More

In various blogs/chats about Ireland, most everyone refers to a stop at Powerscourt, and I'd say with good reason. For one thing, the general area (Wicklow mountains) is really beautiful. The gardens themselves are nicely laid out, and an interesting contrast to much of what...More

We were really looking forward to seeing this highly promoted venue. It turned out to be less than expected since many of the blooms were gone or past their best when we visited on October 2, 2018. When we asked to view the House (it's...More

Thanks Sean B for that comprehensive list of options on how to get here. If you are going to the Waterfall unfortunately you would need to go by car or taxi. It is a narrow country road and a long walk from the village, so... More

Dogs must be on a leash at all times at the Estate and the Waterfall. Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted in the Gardens with the exception of guide dogs. But they are welcome at the Waterfall and along the Avenue.
