Explore the mesmerizing beauty and history of County Wicklow
The Ritz-Carlton, Powerscourt 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 County Wicklow hotel and 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 for our Powerscourt hotel guests to explore the great outdoors and pursue many of the area activities
favoured by the country gentry, such as horse riding, fishing and shooting.
