I do not regret visiting the falls but do think it is a bit overpriced. It was also too bad that there had been little rain so the waterfall was not as impressive as it could've been. That being said, it was one of our...More

We visited the highest waterfall in Ireland and the park, it was a pretty place, but rather expensive for an hours visit. Beautiful 120 year old oak trees and greenery. The place is rather busy and it is hard to secure a good photo-op. This...More

You can't beat a nature's natural wonder but I did not understand why they charge you for it. The trails surrounding were scenic and there was definitely more to see than just the falls. Not worth the price if you are going just to see...More

It’s a must see. Beautiful place to go with the family. Picnic or barbecue or food for sale there. The only downside is it’s €6 an adult it would be better to charge by car. But a lovely day out.

This is a lovely spot, easy access to the plentiful car park, easy walk to the waterfall, small but reasonable cafe with good number of picnic tables. The cost of £16 for a family to get in is a bit rich tho. Due to lack...More

Well worth a visit an amazing sight, plenty of Parkin, if a bit expensive, and varied walks. Can get up close and really enjoy.

It's a short drive from Powerscourt estate and alittle walk from the cafe. Interesting rocks to climb on and a pretty little stream.

It is on private property and there is a gate across the road which I am sure they close and lock up over the winter. You have to pay an admittance fee to go back to where it is located, as you would when entering a park....

Hi Robert Unfortunately not and the rounds are very narrow so I would not recommend walking to the Waterfall. Warm Regards Carmel
