“The end of the rainbow hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2012

Outstanding hotel in a fairy tale setting! Sadly, I spent only one night in this hotel as part of a Living Social deal flying out of Boston. I would have loved to have stayed for days on end ... it was truly the most magnificent hotel and setting one can imagine. I have traveled a significant amount around Europe, staying in both elegant and budget hotels over the years. This hotel far exceeded my expectations for even the Ritz-Carlton. The staff was friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and helpful. We were upgraded to a suite upon arrival and were astounded at how large and beautiful our room was, with more amenities than we knew what to do with. We took a long walk along the river which was magnificent and dined in the Gordon Ramsay restaurant which was absolutely delicious. Before dining we had drinks in the pub downstairs and enjoyed fun conversation with the bartender. I could not have felt more comfortable in any hotel anywhere!

We spent seven nights and used the hotel as a base to travel around the area. The grounds are magnificent and the service typically outstanding. The materials used in the hotel are of the ultimate quality.

A few minor issues: The lighting in the bedroom portion of our 'room' was too dim. The TV remote has a curiously clumsy and slow system to change channels.

That said, the owners and staff of this fine hotel are to be commended.

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.
