Powerscourt Estate and County Wicklow offer an abundance of healthy outdoor activities for children. Take a stroll through the world-famous Powerscourt House and Gardens
where children are enchanted by the colorful flower beds, ponds and statuary and in particular with the Pet Cemetery. Formal headstones mark the last resting place of much loved pets belonging to the Wingfield and Slazenger families. This quiet slope beneath mature trees is believed to contain the largest pets’ cemetery in any private Irish garden.
If you wish to take a more active approach to the day, why not take a stroll or a bicycle to The River Walk
, a private and hidden gem, deep within the walls of Powerscourt Estate? This is one of Ireland’s most charming and secluded places to explore. Its ancient and unspoiled beauty is carefully protected and only a very select few are invited to enjoy the splendor that lies beyond the gates to this very charming and secret space. The real beauty and essence of The River Walk is found in the many secret woodland trails that radiate from the main pathway and which are very safe and easy to explore. Access to the River Walk can be arranged through the Hotel Concierge and guests can travel by foot, bicycle or golf buggy. For a more comprehensive visit to The River Walk, we recommend ordering a picnic from the Hotel Concierge so that you and your family can enjoy delicious food, enhanced by fresh air, tranquility and the sounds of the river.

Located at Powerscourt House, a 5 minute walk from the hotel, guests are invited to delight in the wonders of Tara's Palace, undoubtedly one of the world’s most magnificent Dolls Palaces. Inspired by Sir Neville Wilkinson’s celebrated Titania’s Palace of 1907, Tara’s 22 room Palace has been meticulously constructed by some of Ireland’s finest craftsmen and has taken over two decades to complete. Designed and built to one-twelfth scale it encapsulates the grandeur and elegance of Ireland’s three great 18th Century Mansions, Castletown House, Leinster House and Carton House. Paintings by leading Irish Artists, including Tom Ryan R.H.A. and miniature furnishing masterpieces by Fred Early, Paul Geoghegan, Michael Walton, John Hodgson and others adorn the State Rooms and private apartments. The magnificent marble Cantilever staircase is by Christopher O’Neill & Sons, while rare examples of glass, porcelain, silver and ivory in miniature have been collected from around the world. The museum is open daily from Monday to Saturday from 10am – 5pm and on Sunday from 12 noon – 5pm. The museum is closed on 25th & 26th December and admission is EUR 12 for a family.
