About
Voted No. 3 In the Top 10 Gardens of the World - by National Geographic! One of the world's great Gardens, Powerscourt is situated 20km south of Dublin City Centre in the foothills of the Wicklow mountains.The Garden was begun by Richard Wingfield in the 1740's and stretches out over 47 acres. It is a sublime blend of formal gardens, sweeping terraces, and ornamental lakes together with secret hollows, rambling walks, walled gardens and over 200 varieties of trees and shrubs. The House was gutted by fire in 1974 but recently has been reborn as an exceptional tourist destination. An audio visual brings to life the rich history of the Estate, while the double height Georgian Ballroom has been restored and hosts wedding and special events.The House is now home to the best in Irish design in gifts, clothes and furniture in the Avoca Stores and Interiors Gallery. Treat yourself to lunch at the Terrace Cafe where you can enjoy exceptional food, from each loaf of Irish bread to Mediterranean tarts or extraordinary salads. Come and explore all that Powerscourt House & Gardens has to offer, there's something for everyone from little explorers to garden enthusiasts!

As beautiful as a garden can be!
Sep 2021
A lovely way to spend an hour - or a day! We have been to the Gardens on three of our many trips to Ireland - and will come back the next time we are near by. Just a wonderful, calming way to relax and wander!

A variety of beautiful gardens
Sep 2021
This is a great place to spend a day outside of the city. The grounds are beautiful. Comprised of several different gardens including: Japanese, perennial, formal Italian, a rose garden, etc. The waterfall (separate from the House and Gardens) was nice, but not sure it was worth the trip.

Take time to smell the roses

Another must see when down in this part of Ireland. We planned to do both the gardens and waterfall as they were both pretty close to one another. They aren’t linked however so you will have to pay in for both.
The gardens were amazing as expected, lots of photo ops at the top of the steps with the mountains in the background. The Japanese garden is definitely worth a look as it just feels so tranquil. Finally the roses are immense, as the saying goes take time to smell the roses

Stunning grounds
Aug 2021 • Solo
A lovely house but the ma8n aspect to this place are the gardens. Lots to walk around and lots to see all on a very good map. I did use the restaurant which was very busy and the food was pretty good jus5be prepared potentially for a long wait. Some very nice shops in the house also.

Horrible customer service
Aug 2021 • Family
We came the day before and we weren’t able to use our ticket at all because it was started raining really hard and we had two small children in a stroller. They wouldn’t even allow us to use our tickets the next day instead! Very bad customer service.

Beautiful day out in fantastic gardens - spent almost the whole day here walking around. Courtyard selling coffee - plenty of seating abs lots of clean toilets .. also can refill water bottles.
Gardens are just so wonderful looks of photo opportunities. Cafe inside has outside seating with distancing abs very tasty wraps. Will definitely come again

Gorgeous place. So many different garden types. We were in the middle of a heatwave so a beautiful time to see the gardens. Nice shops in the house and good lunch options.
