This place has lots of potential...just a bit of a tidy up and some planting would really help the look of the place. The space immediately outside the back exit is very scruffy! The drinks were good and the calamari was pronounced delicious! Car parking is available though the village of Enniskerry gets really busy!!

A lovely old fashioned pub. The rooms are big and spacious but could do with a bit of tlc and updating. The food, however, was excellent and the Guinness like velvet! We did have a bit of noise in our room from a very loud radio in the kitchen below but only for a short while Enjoyed our stay here... More

I can't review the food in the bar because we didn't even get that far. We stood at the doorway for more than 5 mins waiting to be seated, then when we got a seat and menu's we were moved again. And then the guy just walked off........didn't bother taking out order. Seated us at a tiny table, we really... More

After golfing at Powerscourt, locals had recommended that we call in at the village for a drink and some craic. We found the bars rather full but found space and slow bar service in this pub / restaurant. After some bang tidy pints of Guinness, we were seated for dinner, and table service was still slow, but cheerful. A decent... More

Just spent 4 nights eating, drinking and overnighting at the Powerscourt Arms. What can I say - fabulous welcome by some excellent staff. The downstairs offering and hospitality are second to none. Shay, Cathy, Derek and co. run an excellent ship. Nothing is too much trouble - even a takeaway cappuccino & croissant at 6am. Upstairs I am afraid needs... More

Stayed here for one night. It was comfy and clean. Very dated and needs to redecorate but for what you pay you get really good value. The bed was so comfortable. Breakfast great. Bar not so great. End up drinking down the road. So if the bar is improved with a better service, there will be no need to leave... More

My parents and i booked into the Powerscourt Arms as we were attending a family function nearby. We were greeted with warm friendly staff, most accommodating, they were extremely busy, the food is delicious and the staff are so attentive, our waiter even provided us with a copy of the breakfast menu whilst eating dinner. The rooms are basic but... More

We stayed here for our son's wedding up the hill at Powerscourt. This is a 300 year old building and the charm of it is everywhere. The staff was excellent! The rooms were clean and neat as were the bathrooms. If you go to Ireland and don't stay at this charming B&B you wasted a 10 hour plane trip. The... More

On a biking trip through Ireland. Decided to stay here. Had a nice welcome fast and smoothly arranged. Got a place to put my bike safely. Very nice pub with friendly people. Only had bad wifi but to me not much of a problem.

Dined here recently and was impressed with the level of service and quality of food. Venue was clean and nicely decorated. Good choice of food on menu. Thought the prices were a little on the higher range for lunch. Would recommend though.
