“Excellent - Excellent all the way around - Wish we could have stayed longer”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

We enjoyed our one night stay at the Powerscourt on Sunday night after the Notre Dame v Navy American Football Match. We rented a car at the airport and drove the easy drive from Dublin down to Powerscourt. The views are simply breathtaking. I agree with numerous posts on this board, the staff is excellent and everyone of them has a smile on their face. They are MORE than happy to help with even the smallest requests. I hihgly recommend working with the staff to plan a picnic and use their bicycles to ride along the wonderful pathways. The food, the amazing pool, the hot tub, were all as perfect as you'd expect from a Ritz property. The only drawback was the bed and pillows were extremely too soft in our room. Outside of that, the room was awesome!

We also walked the golf course and Powerscourt Gardens next door and encourage anyone to do the same if able. The walk was wonderful and helped burn off the terrific food from the restaurant at the hotel.

Room Tip: Anything that faces the mountains is worth the upgrade.

Beautiful view and interior. The building looks a little odd and tired from the outside. Coming from staying at some of the finest castles and estates around Ireland, it looks a little commercial in comparison. None the less, very beautiful hotel. Especially like the chandeliers. Impeccable service from all staff. Very efficient and friendly.

A special mention for my therapist Fiona fantastic massage and so professional will defintely be back. I have been too many spas all over the country and this is defintely up with the best (as a qualified therapist myself my expectations are always high and the ESPA certainly lived up to my expectations!!! Fantastic...

Highly recommend this spa for a fantastic girlie weekend!!

Forget the amazing views, the fantastic rooms and mind-blowing room technology. The staff are the business. Well recommended. I lost my glasses and I had concierge personally assist me for over 20 minutes. Fantastic service.

Room Tip: Top floor, left wing facing the fountain. Fantastic.

The location of this hotel is fab! Views over the Wicklow mountains & fantastic walks in the grounds help burn off the calories from the very big breakfast. My son and I stayed in a suite so had plenty of space. The rooms are very clean, views amazing, decent size beds with plenty of pillows, great big showers and baths and decent coffee in the refreshment tray. Breakfast is in the restaurant downstairs and this was very good. Pancakes were made for my son and they were delicious. We had dinner in the Gordon Ramsey restaurant and enjoyed the food. There was a wait between courses but only what you would normally get in any good restaurant. I agree with some other reviewers in that it lacks atmosphere but that could be due to the older age of the dinners and the downstairs location. The gym and spa was great- highly recommend. The pool tiles are black and the area dimly lit so it is perfect to chill out in and the pool is big! Spa was superb - book treatments they are worth it! Highly recommend the hotel and will return soon. PS Avoca is further along in the grounds- great place for lunch/picnic snacks.

Room Tip: Suites on high floors have great views.

A friend and I spent a weekend in August at the hotel, thanks to Marriott points. (Yay!)

We took the bus from Dublin to Enniskerry, and asked at the pub to have the hotel car come pick us up. The driver was friendly and helpful, and we were at the hotel in just a few minutes.

As others have noted, the lobby is plush and comfortable, and the check in process quick and smooth. I noticed a set of portable steps pushed up to the check in desk, and an iPad set up for "Ritz Kids" check in - that was a warm touch for families. (And there were a lot staying that weekend!)

You know how European hotel rooms can be tiny and cramped? Before arriving, we'd worried that we'd be on top of each other for two days. Well, that was so not an issue. We walked in and the first thing we saw was a large room to the right -- the closet! One side for hanging clothes and one side of shelves. A room safe, two plush robes, and a clothes butler in the corner were additional conveniences.

The bathroom was also large, with two sinks, a tub, and a rainfall shower. A fan went on when you closed the shower door! Nice. Do you know what else impressed me? A crystal ring holder on the shelf behind the sink. That little detail told me all about the hotel's attention to its guests.

Beds were very comfortable, the tv had plenty of channels, and although we couldn't figure out how to turn on the light by the reading chair, we appreciated that it was there! LOL

The view out the windows (that actually opened!) was fantastic. We had to force ourselves to not sit there all day to admire the hotel grounds and views beyond.

We didn't eat at any of the hotel eateries except McGill's Pub - the arugula Ceasar salad is delicious! We ate it two nights in a row. The fish and chips there were just okay. The folks working in the pub were busy, but still very friendly. On our first night David took good care of us. He helpfully got the wine list from the "wine bar" and let us order from it. (We laughed about the wine bar that wasn't. Have to admit, that set up is a little odd.) Our second night it was Charlotte whose sweet smile and friendliness made the pub a good place to hang out.

We did have dessert on Sunday night at Gordon Ramsey's restaurant... The profiteroles with mint ice cream were fabulous - but the real star was the very untraditional tiramisu. KILLER.

This is a place I want to stay at again. Every single staffer had a smile and a friendly word for us. The room layout, view, and comfort level were marvelous. The grounds were beautifully kept, and it was an easy walk to Powerscourt Estate in one direction and Enniskerry in the other. We'd get a car next time to allow us to explore more.

This hotel does 5 Star right.

My wife and I stayed at this magnificent hotel from August 7, 2012 to August 10, 2012 and found the hotel to be excellent in all categories. The rooms are very big. The hotel personnel go out of their way to help you. The view is absolutely spectacular. The food is scrumptious. We love staying at the Ritz Carlton Hotels throughout the world and my wife and I would have to rate this Ritz Carlton as the second best Ritz Carlton that we have ever stayed at in the world. We wanted to visit Dublin. However, the Hotel and the surrounding area was so spectacular, we simply did not have time to visit Dublin. However, we will be back!@!!
