Reviewed 25 November 2013

This Hotel certainly ticks all the boxes, it is certainly of 5 Star quality and the staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. We played golf on Saturday, the facilities and course are maticulously maintained. On checking into the hotel, we were shown to our room by a porter who explained everthing through the room in fine detail and in a jovial manner. Could not find fault in this hotel and would love to return for a two or three night stay in the near future!!

Room Tip: All rooms seemed excellent!

We bought a vacation package that included a 6 night stay at the Powerscourt. This place is amazing and we had such a great time. The hotel is just south of Dublin and was a prefect location. The gated hotel grounds are absolutely beautiful overlooking gorgeous mountains. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful and our room was huge and had every amenity. Don't miss the 44 acre Powerscourt gardens next door. We were there in November and, even with most of the flowers gone, it was breathtaking. The paths wind along beautiful trees, small lakes and fountains. Enniskerry is adorable, although walking there from Powerscourt may be dangerous in places. Make sure you stop at Poppies Cafe! From the Powerscourt, it was a short drive over to the coastal city of Bray where we caught the train into Dublin. Another day, the concierge mapped us a driving route down through the Wicklow Mountains and back up along the coast. At every turn, we all were totally in awe of the beauty. There are some fabulous golf course close by with some holes running along the sea. It was hard to leave this wonderful hotel and this beautiful country. I really have nothing negative to say about our stay at the Powerscourt. We got a great rate through our trip package. I'm not sure what the regular rate is, but I probably can't afford to go back there as often as I'd like---although it would be worth the splurge!

We stayed here for two night, the main reason we chose this hotel was the fact we could take our dog with us, For an extra €50 your dog can stay in the room (must be a small dog) The hotel and grounds are lovely. As we had our dog we could not eat in the restaurants which was understandable, the room service menu I must say is the worse I have seen in a 5 star hotel. in fact it was just to cards of paper. When I received it I went to the reception to ask for the real menu because I thought we did not have the proper one. The staff are very friendly and helpful and even when we had a drink in the lobby they got a bowl of water for our dog. The rooms are huge and include a walk in wardrobe. The room service was only ok but I feel this is down to the poor choice on the menu.

We very recently stayed here for a night away as part of our honeymoon.

Beautiful hotel with excellent staff and food. Our suite was amazing. Vet spacious and bright.

Being a 5 star hotel, food and drinks are quite expensive.

We had some massages and this was the highlight of our stay. Mandy, the masseuse was AMAZING and worth her weight in gold!

Just a few comments on items which surprised us given the cost of a stay at this property;

No complimentary drinking water in our room, the only water available was in the mini bar. Never encountered this in a 5 star hotel before.

We were offered a complimentary newspaper which never arrived.

Very limited toiletries in the bedroom, one small bottle of shower gel for two people is just not enough.

Taking all of the above into consideration, we really enjoyed our stay.

I have just returned from my second stay at Powerscourt Hotel, the former Ritz Carlton. My husband had arranged a surprise trip for my birthday and needless to say, we were not disappointed. The hotel has only just changed its owners and is, without a doubt, our favourite place to stay on the island of Ireland. It is situated in the beautiful Powerscourt Estate in County Wicklow, a short distance from the centre of Dublin. From the moment you walk through the door, you are made to feel so special and so welcome by all the staff. The hotel itself is opulent and extremely relaxing but not at all stuffy. It oozes quality and style, evidence that it was built at the height of the Celtic Tiger boom. Our room, a standard double, was enormous, and had no less than five wardrobes! The bathroom was also huge and like everyone else, we love the television built into the mirror! The room was beautifully furnished and the bed extremely comfortable. We had a celebratory dinner in what was the Gordon Ramsey restaurant but is now the Sika. The meal was superb, as indeed was the service we received from our waiter. Every dish was explained but even though the restaurant was extremely quiet that particular night, we were not rushed in any way. The Espa spa is out of this world. The pool is most unusual being very dark. The floor is studded with Swarovski crystals and there is an unbelievable Turkish steam room which we did not try! The whole experience is totally relaxing and is an added bonus to your stay.

All in all, a wonderful place to stay, hopefully Marriott will maintain the high standards of Ritz Carlton, and as a couple we hope very much to return on a regular basis.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Sugar Loaf are the nicest.

Formerly the Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt, this luxurious hotel built on the Powerscourt estate property (presumably with some sort of land deal with the government since the Irish government now owns much of the estate itself) is very much a creature of the excesses of the "Celtic Tiger" days. It is undeniably magnificent (in a slightly exaggerated, imitative way -- the 18th c Palladians didn't put TV screens in their bathroom mirrors), and located in Wicklow, a beautiful part of Ireland just south of Dublin. It is easily reached from the airport and is situated just outside of the charming village of Enniskerry, about a two-kilometer hike from the hotel itself. From Enniskerry, regular buses run into Dublin (about an hour) and nearby Bray, where you can catch the train into the city center. The hotel staff was friendly, eager and helpful, though sometimes a bit raw (it seems that the hotel is being used in part for interns and training) and the rooms were big, nicely appointed and the beds comfortable. The transition from the R-C (the changeover occurred on October 1) was evident in minor ways (all the letterhead was being changed, so there was no hotel information in the room, for example), but overall it seemed like business as usual. The pool and spa are delightful. The McGill Pub was a good imitation of an Irish pub, but why not walk down the street to a real one?

Room Tip: We booked a lovely, enormous suite that looked out on the courtyard. It was great, but the regular r...

Nothing bad to say about this place at all. Little piece of Heaven in the Garden of Ireland. The room was mind boggling! HUGE, HUGE, HUGE. Everything was controlled by a touchscreen located next to bed and there was even a tv in the mirror in the bathroom! This room was beyond accessible! Plenty of room for a wheelchair. Bathroom was HUGE and very wheelchair friendly. The glass doors of the shower completly folded open and you could wheel your chair right up next to the shower chair provided. This shower could have easily accomdated 5 people!! We were greeted by a valet upon arrive who was with us from the time he opned the car door to let us out to through check in and until he unloaded our bags in our room and explained how everything worked. There were 3 of us staying the room so they had to bring in a roll away bed as the room had 1 king bed. the roll away bed was not a cot but an actual single bed. Beds were extremely comfortable and made it very hard to get out of in the mornings. pillows A+
They had a converter box to plug multiple devices in so you didn't need to worry about having a converter. We used their laundry service which I believed was reasonably priced and extremely prompt. Dining....was wonderful and you couldn't have asked for a better view than Sugarloaf mountain!
Hotel staff extremely friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for you. DIdn't make me feel like a nuisance in my wheelchair.
