Powerscourt House & Gardens

AN ANCIENT HOME AND GARDENS WELL WORTH THE DETOUR

Less than an hour’s drive south of Dublin, you’ll find the relaxing haven of Powerscourt House and Gardens by the east coast.

Powerscourt House was voted one of the top 10 houses to visit worldwide by Lonely Planet. What’s more, the surrounding gardens were voted number 3 of the world’s top gardens by National Geographic.

If that lofty praise doesn’t convince you, we further recommend stopping for a few hours of discovery, a nice lunch or a relaxing walk. 

Completed in 1741, the mansion is steeped in history and also boasts a scenic view of a nearby mountain to the south, Great Sugar Loaf.

You’ll want to spend some time roaming the gardens, designed back in the 1730s. You have 47 acres of land to explore, including formal gardens such as the Italian Garden and Walled Gardens. The area is also peppered with individual delights, such as secret hollows, lakes, statues and terraces.

Nearby you will also find Ireland’s highest waterfall, Powerscourt Waterfall, in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountain. Easily accessible, at only 6 kilometres (3.7 miles) away from Powerscourt House, the waterfall is just a short drive away. Witness its majesty yourself, the falls standing proud at 121 metres (398 feet).

The gardens and waterfall are open all year round, except for a few holidays.

Entrance fee required.
