The Powerscourt Hotel

A short drive south of Dublin city, in one of Ireland’s most scenic locations in the beautiful Wicklow Hills, this deluxe hotel set in the 47 acre Powerscourt Estate contributes a wide range of amenities to the area. Reminiscent of a formally iced wedding cake when seen from across the hills, the crescent shaped building is in fact designed to sit as neatly as possible into its forested site.


Entry is on the fourth floor, where palatial public areas are designed to make the most of the wonderful location overlooking formal landscaped gardens and the Sugarloaf mountain beyond; informal meals are served in these areas, and the welcome aroma of open fires adds a human dimension.


Accommodation, in quite traditionally furnished suites and rooms, is to a predictably luxurious level throughout, with items like signature linens and marble bathrooms as standard and the hotel lays a special emphasis on service (including details like evening turndown service for VIP rooms).


Resort amenities include the existing 36-hole championship-quality Powerscourt Golf Club golf complex, and a 30,000 square foot spa with VIP suites, 20 treatment rooms, and an equally impressive Fitness Centre, a children’s activity programme and babysitting services.


With such an exceptional location and state-of-the-art meeting and event amenities, this is a sought-after venue for a wide range of events, both corporate and private, including weddings. 


The dining experiences offered range from casual meals in McGills Irish Pub or Afternoon Tea in the foyer lounge area (aptly named The Sugar Loaf Lounge), to fine dining on the terrace. There is also a newer contemporary restaurant, The White Pheasant, at the Golf Club.


Conferences/Banqueting (500/350); broadband wi/fi; business centre, secretarial services, video conferencing, laptop sized safes in bedrooms. Golf (36), walking, gardens, leisure centre (pool, fitness room, steam room, jacuzzi); Destination Spa (treatment rooms, massage etc); Equestrian, fishing (fly, coarse & sea), garden visits & hunting/shooting all nearby. Children welcome (under 5s free in parents room, cot available, baby sitting arranged, kids club). Wheelchair friendly. Rooms 200.


Sika Restaurant:


The formal dining room is surprisingly low-ceilinged, but large tables are generously spaced and in fine weather the large terrace is particularly appealing, offering diners the chance to absorb the mountain location al fresco.


Indoors a pale green palette has been used in an understated way, with floral rugs in camouflage colours the main features in this low-key room.


The menu tends to be high on luxury ingredients and seafood, and the cooking is contemporary. A Chef's Table is availabe for those who enjoy a close up kitchen/dining experience.


Adjoining the dining room is a classy bar - packed with large armchairs, it is a pleasant spot for aperitifs or digestifs.

Seats 88 (outdoors, 48; private dining, 14 & 16; chefs table, 10); Restaurant open for L Sat/Sun only, 12-2pm, set L €45 & D daily; 6-10pm; early bird D €40 Sun-Fri 6-7.30pm; set D €55, gourmet menu €95; also a la carte.
