We really enjoyed our meal in the Sugar Loaf Restaurant. I had sea food chowder. We had the fresh fish of the day with chunky chips. It was displayed nicely on the plate and the fish melted in our mouths.Gorgeous. The service was excellent.

Located on the lobby level of Powerscourt Hotel, our Sugar Loaf Lounge is perfect for meeting, greeting and watching the world go by. Serving traditional Afternoon Tea daily and cocktails each evening, the Lounge is a haven of hospitality, with an all-day menu of casual dining too. Furnished and appointed in a style of gracious Georgian living, there's a traditional warmth to the Sugar Loaf Lounge our guests often comment on. Of course, the spectacular scenery outside, framed by the vast curved windows offers a breathtaking counterpoint to the intimate welcome within. Here there's always something to talk about. Reservations for Afternoon Tea are recommended. We look forward to welcoming you.
