“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Great spot, absolutely fabulous views, very spacious suites with beautiful bathroom & toiletries, really delicious breakfast & dinner in Sugar Loaf Lounge - both overlooking the Sugar Loaf Mountains and dinner in McGill's was to a v high standard served by friendly bar staff. It has a really great pool, only open to children from 9-12 & 3-6 but that's enough! Staff were fantastic at all times!

The following is our firsthand experience of the Powerscourt hotel. We stayed at this hotel on Sunday of the bank holiday in June and were very disappointed that there was no entertainment of any kind there that night. The place lacked atmosphere. We were informed that there was entertainment in the nearby village. Considering we had booked into this hotel and paid well for it, the hotel should have provided some form of entertainment. The whole purpose of the night away way to relax in that hotel and not be told to go to a pub in the village!! Some staff in restaurant were not friendly or polite. Prices in restaurant were overpriced also. We weren't very impressed overall.

Two of us stayed six nights in May 2014 at the Powerscourt; it's huge, and hugely luxurious; our bathroom had double doors; the toilet and the shower were each modestly tucked away behind swinging etched-glass doors, and we would have needed a ladder to get into the bathtub. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are a generous size (closets are in a separate niche from the main room). The view from any of the windows is lovely. Amenities beyond the room: three or four venues for food, daily teas in the olympic-size lobby, generous parking space, some covered. Around the hotel, beautiful gardens,some of them formal, and one large paved open space with a fountain/sculpture in the center and potted plants in each corner, and around each of these was a labyrinth marked in the concrete, a comfortable size for meditation. Only drawback for us: the price of meals.

Location is beautiful once you know what to expect. You will need a car. The staff were excellent overall.

Since you would expect everything to be impeccable for the price I'm gonna point out the few negatives;

* Breakfast is poorly organized. There were no menus on the tables to order non buffet eggs or coffee. None available either when asked. Self service coffee is drip coffee only, nothing fancy unless you want to wave down an overworked waitress and wait. The breakfast room was like a creche on Sunday morning. The baby on the table next to me was shrieking like it was being skinned alive, parents just ignored it and tended to their cake. I asked if I could be moved, as you are not allowed to sit where you like, and the waitress tried moving me to the table next to the one I was at, an entire meter further away from the ear piercing shrieking baby and its cake loving guardians.

* TV does not accept USB stick input (I have gotten used to this as a basic feature in any half decent hotel)

* No ice machine on my floor. Staff were helpful but I didn't enjoy bothering them everytime I fancied ice.

Overall I'd go again but I'd skip the breakfast if going on a weekend.

This was our last stop after a 10 day road trip through Ireland. We purposefully wanted to stay somewhere outside of Dublin, but close to the hotel. Powerscourt could not have been more perfect.

We arrived exhausted, grimy, and a lot hungover. From the outside we were expecting five-star pretentiousness but the reception was extremely friendly and accommodating. It probably also helped that we were updated to a suite!

When we walked into our room our jaws dropped. There was so much space that I was literally running laps from room to room. Normally you pick a hotel because it's centrally located to something you want to see. I would pick this hotel just to stay at the hotel! We honestly did not want to leave the room.

And...it was the only hotel of our entire trip that had air conditioning. We probably sound like spoiled Americans but trust me it did not go unappreciated.

We also thoroughly enjoyed the indoor pool and hammam located within the spa but were open to guests of the hotel. When we did leave the hotel, it was to use the hotel bicycles to explore the grounds (Powerscourt Estate & Gardens are literally right next door).

Our trip could not have ended on a higher note.

Staying at the Powerscourt Hotel was the best hotel experience I've ever had. The comfort of the room was fantastic. The service was impeccable. The staff at the Powerscourt was genuinely happy to provide service and also was genuinely happy. Every member of the staff that I interacted with was pleasant; they all remembered that they are in the hospitality business something that is lost on some hotel staffs, especially 5 star hotels. The Powerscourt is a 5 star hotel without the stuffy attitude. The facilities were wonderful including the pool and spa. I haven't mentioned the views or the Estate grounds which are beautiful and there's a golf course on the grounds. The food at the Sika Restaurant was excellent, especially the breakfast buffet. Lunch and/or afternoon tea at the The Sugar Loaf Lounge was very nice and McGills was a nice place to eat and have a pint or two. I'd recommend The Powerscourt to anyone and everyone.

This is our second time staying at the Powercourt Hotel - the first was while it was a Ritz-Carlton property, and now under its new guise as just the Powerscourt (but still owned by Marriott, who own Ritz-Carlton). Not much has changed apart from some of the signs and the hotel is still a nice as it was before. We booked a total of 3 rooms throughout the hotel and they kindly put us all just next to each other on the same floor which was handy. The food is of good quality (we had breakfast in the room and also in the restaurant and we were never let down). All hotels in the brand have some special Children's actiivies and this has a special kids room (which is rather hidden down a fire escape) which was perfect for a rainy day although it does close rather early so we couldn't enjoy it as much as we'd liked. All of the staff here are very helpful and the hotel is very well priced for the standard you get there. We will definitely be back next time we are in Ireland!

Room Tip: The suites are worth it - much cheaper than at other hotels and beautiful
