“Insane!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

There are some aspects of this resort, which make it the best property I have ever stayed - and I have stayed at some good ones.

This property is the epitome of luxury; everything from the bedding to the incredible shower to the cool television in the mirror.

I also had a massage in the Spa, which was excellent. The facilities are overall the best I have ever seen.

If I had one minor criticism, I didn't think the gym was fitting for a hotel of such high caliber.

I stayed here for a week over the St. Patrick's Day 2013 weekend. It was amazing! From the second we got onto the grounds everything was first class. The staff were willing to assist us in any requests we had. The room was the Standard / Classic Deluxe room but was overwhelmed by the size and the amenities. Housekeeping was very prompt and even folded our clothes and balled up my friend's socks which were on the floor each day. On the last night everything was neatly folded and stacked at the foot of our beds so it could be placed into our suitcases.

If we wanted to get down into the village, the front desk would arrange for a car to drive us down; when we were ready to come back, the car would come and pick us up! We ate breakfast in town at Poppies which was good and inexpensive.

Made a reservation to eat at Ramsay's one night when they had a set 3 course menu. Great value. We were the last ones in the restaurant so we got to see the Chef's Table in the kitchen. Spotless! Have your camera ready if you are going to order the Chocolate Sphere for dessert. :)

Make sure to spend time in the Pool/Spa area, a great way to relax after a long day travelling around the island. We didn't get any of the packages, but the pool area and wet sauna were really nice. Try and spend a morning at the gardens nearby or head down to the waterfall.

On the weekend, we drove to Bray (about 15min), parked the car and took the train into Dublin. It was easier and didn't have to worry about paying the toll each way and dealing with road closures and parking in the city. One of the biggest expenses for the trip was gas for the car. Getting to Cork or Blarney were almost 3hr drives each way in a Ford Fiesta. We should have stayed in Limerick one night so we could get up early to the Cliffs the next morning and then drive back to the Ritz.

As of October, it's no longer part of the Ritz-Carlton chain but still operational.

Fantastic from start to finish! The grounds--unbelievable. The rooms--spacious and delightfully appointed, the spa--like no other. Fairly easy to get here from Dublin. For the time/money its worth it to take a cab vs the bus.

For only about two hundred rooms this hotel felt huge in a good way, with a few dining options and many helpful staff members, and of course the grounds are amazing.

Go to the pub!! The food is delicious and it definitely felt genuine, especially for a hotel bar.

This hotel is one of the most beautiful in the world. The grounds are spectacular; the setting unique. It was very comfortable - the bed, the quiet, the cleanliness... all outstanding. Nothing short of a Ritz Carlton hotel experience. The staff was exceptional; very accommodating and friendly. The staff will drive you down to Eniskerry Village, or Powerscourt Manor (which is a short walk), and pick you up. I borrowed a bike and was given a nice map and directions, along with a pass to go to the beautiful Riverwalk. Truly a gorgeous property!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back of the hotel have a stunning view and terrace. Highly recommend!

I stayed here for 2 nights during a conference which was held at the hotel. The standard rooms are incredibly spacious and are very well appointed. The decor is elegant and the bathrooms very plush. I loved the TV that was seamlessly built into the bathroom mirror. It is a true luxury property and lives up to the Ritz-Carlton name. Note that it is due to lose the Ritz-Carlton branding on 1st October, I’m not sure what changes may result from this!

The hotel is in a beautiful setting surrounded by the Irish countryside. On a clear day, you can enjoy beautiful views from one side of the hotel. It is very isolated, making it a good place to relax and unwind. I liked the fact that if breakfast was included in your room rate, you could have it delivered to your room as an alternative to going down to the restaurant. Many others have commented on the positive aspects of the hotel, and I would agree for the most part. I’ll focus here on a couple of the negatives:

1) The room was not made up very well after my first night. It felt very rushed, and there were some obvious faults, such as not clearing up a used coffee mug.

2) Wifi worked very well most of the time (and it was free). However, on one night it stopped working completely, which was quite frustrating. When calling the reception desk to complain, the call went unanswered.

3) There is a tray charge of €5 for anything ordered via room service. That’s fine when ordering breakfast, etc, but this was applied even when I ordered a single bottle of water, which ended up costing me €11. This seemed excessive, although I appreciate that there are other hotels that carry out similar practises.

The above are fairly minor issues in what was otherwise an excellent stay. The first two points might be attributed to the conference being held at the hotel, which had resulted in the hotel being absolutely packed with delegates. Still, I would have expected them to be prepared for this. I did get the impression that the hotel is commonly used for conferences and other big events (the Powerscourt House right next door is ideally suited for weddings, etc). If I was staying here on leisure, I would be wary about the possibility of large groups occupying parts of the hotel.

Had the most enjoyable stay here for my husbands 40 th with our 4 boys including 7 month old twins. The staff were do friendly and helpful attending to our every need. Room was beautiful and as we were stating in a suite , we had plenty of space. Food in sugar loaf lounge was excellent and breakfast was a delight the following morning . A most enjoyable stay !

I recently stayed at this gorgeous hotel and was beyond impressed with the overall experience. Ritz Carlton customer service at its finest! From the parking attendants, reception staff to Trish (fantastic!) in Concierge, everyone was helpful, courteous and bent over backwards to make our stay spectacular. We upgraded our room to a third floor suite- ample room for three women to move around, gather on the semi-private patio and yet allow for privacy. High tech features while maintaining elegant atmosphere(touch pad controls for lighting, window treatments, heating and cooling and iPhone docking stations) while maintaining elegant atmosphere. Courtesy use of bicycles around the area and quick rides into Enniskerry whenever we requested. Dinned at Gordon Ramsay- chocolate sphere was to die for! By far, the best hotel experience I have ever had!
