gorgeous hotel in an even more beautiful location

Posted 25-May-2016
Pros: everything
Location: Wicklow mountains, Vail of Avoca, golf courses, walks, botanical gardens, just loads of things and only minutes from Dublin and coast
Magnificent setting just a half hour from Dublin, facilities are top notch, pool and spa exhilarating, especially when on a trip. Golf courses looked stunning, but did not get to play. Tremendous value, we only had one night but wished we had at least a 3 day 2 night stay. Simply Stunning environment

Check in was slow and a little chaotic. Otherwise service excellent and spa facilities excellent.

Luxury hotel in wonderful surroundings

Posted 17-Feb-2016 on Ebookers
Nice hotel. Quite a lengthy wait at check-in/check-out but staff generally helpful. Spa (swimming pool/changing room/hot tub) could all do with better maintenance (for example, there was a sticky residue on the top of the metal benches in the hot tub, no towels in the changing room, and quite a few lockers did not actually lock). Room very spacious and clean. Choose Mountain view when booking your room as resort view means view of carpark and bottle bins. Hotel feels a bit dated in decor but I think that's sort of the look they're going for. Probably would stay here again if visiting Powerscourt estate/gardens.

5 stars on a quite night- 3 star on a busy night.

Posted 27-Jan-2016 on Hotels
Overall it was disappointing. Good points: Room was very nice, great shower, great bed. Staff do try to be helpful. Service was good in the bars and restaurants (if you get in). Great service offered to bring you into and collect your from the local village. Bad points: Hotel was too busy, every service was at max. We couldn't get a table in either restaurants for dinner (tried booking on check in). Given the run around by staff in terms of trying to put me through to the restaurant as a result I literally wasted an hour of my stay trying and failing to book dinner. The room we booked was a suite- not enough of an upgrade over the standard rooms to recommend it. Large Que to get a table at breakfast. Swimming pool packed with people. Spa was completely booked up with over 20 people on a waiting list. So overall a nice hotel but it fundamentally cannot handle the numbers when the hotel is 90% full. In the morning again there was not enough staff on check out resulting in large Ques. It seems there is something fundamentally flawed in this hotel. I'd highly recommend it on a quite night though.

Amazing Spa Break in beautiful surroundings.

Posted 10-Jan-2016 on Hotels
We stayed in Powerscourt on New Years night. Hotel was better than expected, room was huge and comfortable. We went for a walk in the grounds which are well mapped out and looked after. And the spa area was amazing. Highly recommend. Downsides related to food and availability. There was no availability in either restaurant and so our only option was to eat in the pub. Also, breakfast was €28 per person which was far too expensive for the amount of food we would eat for breakfast.

We enjoyed our stay, however I had to pay for an upgrade even though we had two babies and a toddler ad needed the extra space, which Id asked for when booking.

Lovely relaxing break in a quiet and beautiful location.

Posted 07-Dec-2015 on Ebookers
Though we only stayed one night, the atmosphere and location was so peaceful it felt like a weekend of relaxation. From sipping coffee in the lobby under the Christmas tree to taking a leisurely stroll along by the river, everything was just magical. Having Avoca in the Powerscourt House very close to the hotel is a very real bonus. After our stroll we had a tasty and healthy lunch there before doing some Christmas shopping in the little shops on location. Would love to return!

A Special Place at Christmas

Posted 04-Dec-2015 on Hotels
Another perfect visit. This time to enjoy the beautiful Christmas decorations. The welcome at reception was professional and friendly. Our standard double room was large, well equipped and very clean. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. We ate in the Sugar Loaf Lounge and found the menu providing a good selection at reasonable prices. The highlight of the trip was the swimming pool. A large pool tiled in black with spectacular lights in the bottom. This gives a relaxing atmosphere and we made use of the loungers round the pool. The only negative aspect was the booking procedure. The web site Hotels.com works very well and offers very good prices. However I left comments for the hotel requesting a particular restaurant booking which was very important to this visit. The hotel informed us that they had not received these requests and that the restaurant was not open that evening. I hope to clarify this before my next booking.
