Powerscourt House and Garden

Powerscourt House and Gardens

Powerscourt House and Gardens showcases one of the most beautiful gardens in Ireland. The complex includes a charming walled garden, striking terraces, fine statuary, varied trees, lovely walks, and scenic surroundings. The estate contains a range of attractions, including a distillery and Ireland’s highest waterfall. The house itself is a luxury hotel and spa, with numerous dining and shopping options.

There is an Italian garden, a Japanese garden, and a pets’ cemetery. The waterfall is Ireland’s highest at 121m (398ft). The once spectacular house (Richard Castle, 1741) was restored after a disastrous fire; however, it is now far from its original glory. Tara’s Palace (a museum for children) is located inside the House.

Opening Hours:
The gardens are the main tourist attraction, and are open 9.30am – 5.30pm all year round, with later opening times in Spring & Summer.
The waterfall is 6km from the gardens, and can be visited as a standalone attraction (no pre-booking available). There are separate admission fees for the gardens and waterfall.
Opening times for the various attractions are different, so it is best to check full opening hours here.
