Wonderful Hotel well deserving its excellent ratin

Posted 22-Nov-2014
Pros: Everything!
Location: Powerscourt house and gardens are a must to visit at anytime of year, the village of Enniskerry half a mile from the hotel is very picturesque
Room was enormous, very comfortable bed and sitting area with stupendous views from our balcony. ALL the staff we had contact with were very helpful and utterly charming

Wonderful place to chill out

Posted 11-Sep-2014
A very pleasurable experience. It was spoiled however by the fact that the Irish pub was closed and we had not had prior notification of this. What this meant is that people were queuing to eat in the bar area which made it difficult to sit down and have a drink when we had been in the restaurant.

GREAT HOTEL, but...

Posted 03-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
Everything was great - as described in the official website, so no reason to repeat. The only negative points were: 1) the pool is not very long, so not appropriate for swimming laps. It is a leasure pool. Great for those who want that. 2) The breakfast should be included in such a prestigeous establishment in any room charge...

Fantastic relaxing break

Posted 03-Sep-2014 on Hotels.com
We had a really great stay at Powerscourt, the relaxing retreat we hoped it would be. The venue is fantastic a short drive form the city but literally buried in beautiful natural surroundings. Buildings are obviously built in celtic tiger times and are only showing minor signs of age. Service is reasonable, some are excellent with a nice blend of helpfulness without being constantly in your face as can happen at 5*. More staff are needed at breakfast mainly because the table area is so large. Guest to staff ratios are not reliable when staff are covering such a large area which results in a long wait if your table is missing something. Room service staff are a little strange, seems like Irish staff who are not speaking naturally but rather have over done the American corporate "have a great day" training course, it would be so much better if they could just use their normal voices!! Minor fault change the lobby furniture, the couches are pretty dirty, change them for something which suits the decor and is easier to clean. Overall tiny details for what is a great property would recommend to anyone

Summer stay

Posted 14-Aug-2014
Pros: Beautiful setting and grounds in the estate.
Cons: Friendlier service in the Sugar loaf lounge, ate in it 3 times and twice put at the same table.
Location: Powerscourt waterfalls.
Surroundings and hotel beautiful. We reported faulty lights in our room but nothing was done about it. Breakfast overpriced at 28 euros each.

Spacious rooms, convenient location, good deal

Posted 08-Aug-2014 on Hotels.com
We stayed only one night at the Powerscourt and enjoyed our stay but were a little disappointed in the service considering it is a 5 star hotel. We were disappointed to find that the McGill's pub was "closed for refurbishment" but it was not posted anywhere until we showed up to the door. Additionally were we a bit dissatisfied with the service at the restaurant in the lounge. However, the rooms were very spacious, comfortable, and clean. In fact, I would say that these are some of the largest hotel rooms that I have seen in Ireland and Europe. Overall, it is 50/50 whether we would stay here again or recommend the Powerscourt. You can tell that it has the bones of an old Ritz Carlton (well, from 2007), but it certainly does not have the service quality of a Ritz.
