Powerscourt Waterfall, Ireland's tallest waterfall, has attracted visitors to the bottom of the Wicklow Mountains for more than 200 years. See the stunning waters, which fall 121 m (398 ft). Explore the park's pathways, or enjoy a picnic and the nearby playground. Admire the beech, oak, larch, pine, and giant redwood trees, which were introduced to the region in the 18th century. Watch for wildlife, including native birds and the Sika Deer. The Powersourt Estate, a 13th-century home located 5 km (3 mi) from the site, owns the waterfall and its valley. The home is also open to the public. Take a look at our Enniskerry travel planner to schedule your visit to Powerscourt Waterfall and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Powerscourt Waterfall Reviews
アイルランドでは一番高い滝ですが、これまでに見てきたアイスランド等の滝と比べると規模や迫力はさほどなく、普通でした。 入場料が大人は6ユーロかかります。敷地内には子どもが遊べるスペースがあり、バーベキューをする人たちもいましたが、この滝を見るだけに６ユーロは高いと思いました。 more »It is the highest waterfall in the Ireland, but the scale and the power were not so much and were usual compared with the waterfall of Iceland etc. which had been seen so far. Admission costs 6 euros for adults.

Having enjoyed the Series Vikings we had to visit this site. It’s an impressive waterfall. I thought £6 entry was a little steep but it’s a well laid out site. Plenty of parking within a short walk to the waterfall. You can then take a few different paths and trails to the other side of the river to get a different perspective on the waterfall. There is a cafe serving simple fair with outdoor seating next to the car park.
Awesome family-friendly destination. Good facilities for kids including playground, shop and toilets. Family ticket is €16 (2+3). What you need is a good weather and plenty of time. The more the better but an hour is absolute minimum. Important note: the waterfall is located on the east side of the hill so if you're going there for a perfect shot you would want to have the sun behind you and that means you need to be there before noon.
