“What's not to like?”
Reviewed 9 October 2012

This hotel is wonderful. Not too far from Dublin, but nestled in the delightful town of Enniskerry. You can take a bus into Dublin or spring for a cab. The property is the home of the Powerscourt gardens which are fabulous. Wonderful spa, but book early, they're quite busy. Restaurants in Enniskerry are great, and the food at the hotel is exquisite. The rooms, bathrooms and closets are huge and comfortable. Really, it's expensive, but in this case you get what you pay for.

This is the best hotel we've ever been in. It is 5 years old and sets the standard for new 5 star hotels. Fantastic decor, and rooms. All the rooms had electronic touch control panel for everything - lights, curtains, etc. The bathroom was huge, with a TV in the mirror over the sink. It is a destination hotel, with an old manor house converted to shops and coffee shops, wonderful gardens; two golf courses; etc. I only wish we'd stayed here longer.
Ate dinner at their Pub, as their restaurant was closed for a private party. The Pub was good, though I wouldn't say outstanding.
Of course everything is expensive. This is a Ritz-Carlton.

I stayed on points, otherwise wouldn't have considered this completely-decked-out luxury hotel. Our room was a fantastic suite, complete with electronic room controls and about 1000 feet of space. The hotel has about everything you would expect from a high-end hotel. The staff was excellent and always helpful.

We ate in the pub area due to our late arrival, and enjoyed our food, though wouldn't have normally considered it at the very high prices offered. (The second night, we were considering the Gordon Ramsey restaurant, but it's quite the budget buster, so we drove about 15 minutes to nearby Johnny Fox's restaurant, a reasonably priced and somewhat famous establishment.)

The only disappointment during our stay was a missing pawn (black) on the life-sized outdoor chess set. A fifteen-minute speed-chess game with these heavy pieces was quite the workout (the queen and king are not easily lifted).

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground level, but were told by another guest that the upstairs rooms had balconies...

I can't believe that this hotel is allowed to charge over 5 euros for a coffee when all they use is a press the button FRANKE coffee machine. I am familiar with this machine and it isn't great by any means. To have the neck to charge this much for a coffee, it should be made by hand with some care!

Gorgeous hotel with perfect rooms. Celebrating five years with outstanding service and the Ritz Carlton vibe. Great place to stay if you want to be close to Dublin (35 minutes) but completely isolated in beautiful country surroundings.

Went here recently with my wife. It was a gift bought for a special birthday by her family.

The hotel itself is impressive. Service and greet very good and rooms nice. Gym area good and pool has nice night swimming feeling (although was very busy and noisy with kids and families about 6pm, quiet then at 7pm).

We both like food over anything but the trestaurant was a big disappoinment. Service started very good but actually got poor later at night when we struggled to order teas and coffees. We were on the "ramsey experience" so had an inclusive package.

The overall food simply did not excite us. Portions were small but that's fine-the taste wasn't that super considering the prices.We saw the food in the bar area and it looked good and arguably was better value.

The "pub" is a hotel area converted into "ye olde irish pub" and lacks real character.

Breakfast had a good selection but there did seem to be a delay getting the eggs cooked up (common in even best hotels) and you had to wait whilst they were prepared (rather than going to your table and having them brought over).

My overall sense was that for the very high costs much better could be obtained (especially on the food front).

We did not use the spa.

We have just returned from celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary at the Ritz Powerscourt and I have to say it was the most memorable anniversary ever because of how special we were made feel by the wonderful staff at the Ritz! As soon as we arrived at check in we were welcomed back and made feel like our custom was very much appreciated, (we had stayed a couple of years previously). We were congratulated on our anniversary and these good wishes really set the way for a wonderful evening.

We had booked a one bedroom classic suite and were given a really beautiful suite with a very spacious balcony overlooking the garden and fountain. We received a delicious plate of chocolates and a card from the management congratulating us on our anniversary. This was a lovely touch!

We had dinner in Gordon Ramsey and throughly enjoyed it! I had the lobster and my husband had the oysters and both were lovely starters. This was followed by a very refreshing mango and passion fruit sorbet. Then we had the sirlion steak and the salmon, again both good. To finish my husband went for the rasberry souffle and I had the tiramsu with coffee ice cream, which was probably the most delicious dessert I have ever had in any hotel or restaurant!! To finish we had coffee and petit fours. Fab!! We opted to have breakfast in our room the next morning and this was delivered on time and perfectly cooked.

We are delighted that we chose the Ritz for our anniversary treat. The staff are so nice and make you feel so special. It certainly wont be too long before we return! Thanks again to you all. I can definitely recommend the Ritz for that special occasion. You will be treated like royalty!
