Top 100 Attractions Review

No trip to Dublin let alone Ireland is complete without a visit to Powerscourt Estate & Gardens. Powerscourt always gets a visit from me whenever I am in the locality of Dublin, and every time I visit, I see something I didn't see before. When an attraction is still on your mind a few days after visiting now that is an attraction worthy of Top 100 status! The gardens here at Powerscourt have to be one of the finest throughout Ireland and sitting on the terrace drinking tea and devouring those Avoca scones and cream or even lunch leaves me feeling as though I have died and already made my way to heaven! Powerscourt has a fine collection of shops and I'm sure you will find something to take home as a souvenir from home-made preserves to gorgeous Irish craft.

Powerscourt Estate & GardensPowerscourt Estate & Gardens

Set in the wild Wicklow countryside, overlooking the Sugarloaf Mountain, Powerscourt Gardens stretch over 47 acres and offer magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. From the ornate Italian Gardens, to the formal walks of the Rose and Kitchen Gardens, there is much to see and explore. Unique features include the Japanese Gardens which offer a maze of walkways and hidden grottos, the tower modelled on a Pepperpot Canister and the largest Pet's Cemetery in Ireland. Don't miss a visit to the longest herbaceous border in Ireland where you can discover 1,000 varieties of plants!

Afterwards, explore the charismatic stores in Powerscourt House, featuring the best of Irish design and local crafts. Relax and unwind in the Terrace Café and indulge in home-cooked cuisine and mouth-watering desserts.

Powerscourt Estate is easy to reach as it is located just 20km south of Dublin City Centre. Every season at Powerscourt is a new experience and the attraction is open year-round.
