About The Powerscourt
The resort is situated amidst one of the most scenic and historic estates in Ireland. Located on the doorstep of Dublin City on the grounds of the 1,000 acre (404 hectares) Powerscourt House and Gardens, the resort’s tranquil countryside location traces its origins back to the 12th century.
The estate is one of the most frequently visited attractions in Ireland and is situated beside the picturesque village of Enniskerry. This is a wonderfully authentic Irish village and is the ideal place to stroll to local cafes, bars, antique shops and boutiques. From Enniskerry, visitors can quickly venture into the capital for superb shopping, world-famous visitor attractions or a taste of Irish nightlife. County Wicklow, known affectionately as ‘The Garden of Ireland’, is a favoured spot for cyclists and hikers, offering many beautiful trails through the mountains.
The estate and the county offer the ideal opportunity to explore the great outdoors and pursue many of the activities favored by the country gentry such as horse riding, golf, fishing and shooting.
From the Airport
The Powerscourt Hotel is located approximately 30 minutes from Dublin International Airport and 20 minutes from Dublin City Centre.
In addition to Taxi service, several car services are available from the airport.
