Powerscourt is one of Europe’s great treasures and Ireland’s most famous Estates. Gracing the Wicklow Mountains, 20km from Dublin city centre, Powerscourt is a heritage property with a surprising difference and a great family attraction.

Powerscourt offers visitors a sublime blend of formal gardens, sweeping terraces, statues and ornamental lakes with secret hollows, rambling walks and beautiful walled gardens. The winding pathways feel like a secret garden at times, revealing new treasures such as fountains from Paris, gates from Venice and statues from Rome. There are hundreds of different types of plants, flowers and trees in the Gardens.

Powerscourt House was once a beautiful Palladian Mansion, home to Lord Powerscourt and his family for over 350 years. Sadly the house was destroyed by fire in the 1970’s but was renovated, although not to its former glory. Powerscourt House now features a beautiful Terrace Café where Avoca serves up delectable cuisine. There are shops located in Powerscourt House including Avoca Stores and Global Village who specialise in interiors. Tara’s Palace, a museum for children is located in Powerscourt House and is a favourite among visitors. There is a regular schedule of events at Powerscourt for visitors to enjoy.
