My family had organised a surprise party for me and without doubt, it was one of the best nights of my life and this was mainly due to the great staff of the powerscourt arms. When my family asked about availability for room hire, they gave us a grand room and wouldn't charge for it. They also gave my husband... More

Fantastic food and service. Cosy lounge. Great selection of specials on a varied and classic menu..Everything from Thai curry to the classic steak. I think you would be hard pressed not to find something that is to your liking. After dinner a few pints of Guinness in Mac's bar next door with the locals the chat can be both weird... More

Hotel does need updating but the staff were very friendly and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful and the music was great and we couldn't hear it when we went to bed. Would stay again.

If you've made reservations at Powerscourt, extend them! there are so many wonderful things to do indoors and outdoors in Enniskerry as well. The amenities, pool, spa, massage, restaurants are wonderful. The staff is personable, polite and very accommodating...very Irish! Take a visit to the Gardens and history of the House as well! A great visit!

Great food and a real gem in Enniskerry, if your in the village don't waste your money in the other pub learn from my mistake . Nice few seats outside too if the weather is good. I had the fish and chips and it was the best I've had in a long time. Will be back.

Stayed overnight with my wife as we walked Wicklow Way. Basic hotel and basic rooms but ok for our needs! A no frills hotel. Evening meal and breakfast were ok but not stunning! Overall this location met our needs for one night! It's worth noting that there are plans for a full refurbishment which is needed !

We arrived late and had already had our evening meal. Good location, quiet. Friendly staff. The rooms were a bit small and basic. Our room was above the bar and we could hear people talking until closing time. The breakfast was great. We were only there for one night and it suited our needs.

This Hotel is in a great location right in the heart of enniskerry and walking distance to powerscourt house. Plenty of parking. Breakfast was delicious. Beds were comfortable. Unfortunately pictures on the website don't match up with the room we stayed in. Decor very old and shabby and really needs updating. There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room.... More

had dinner here (2 adults and 2 teens) and it was excellent. The place was very very busy and we had to wait for a table. Its a little rustic but charming all the same. All of the food was delicious and we didn't have a single issue. Great value for money.

Classic Irish pub/restaurant! Best pub food ever and great people, too. We also enjoyed watching a rugby game on the tele whilst we ate. Small place and perfect for a quick bite. Steak and chips and the best wings in the country! Along with the perfect pour (Guinness), of course. My hubby said it was the most tender steak he... More
