Powerscourt Waterfall in County Wicklow is Ireland’s highest at 121m (398ft.) and is 5km from Powerscourt Estate. It is set in one of Ireland’s most beautiful parklands at the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains.

As you drive from the gatelodge towards the Waterfall you are surrounded by Beech, Oak, Larch and Pine trees some of which were planted over 200 years ago. Look out for the Giant Redwoods, which are native to Northern California where they may grow up to 80m high and live for 4,000 years so they are still youngsters!

The Waterfall is an ideal location for Summer picnics and bbqs. There is a vast amount of space to keep children entertained. There is also a playground for younger children. The Waterfall is a haven for wildlife and children can have fun trying to spot some of the locals – the Chaffinch, Cuckoo, Raven and the Willow Warbler. Some other inhabitants are the Sika Deer which were introduced to Ireland in 1858 and there may be a red squirrel or two.

There is a refreshment kiosk on-site serving tea, coffee and a selection of snacks. The kiosk is open everyday from the 1st June to the end of August and year round at weekends – weather permitting. There is ample car parking and toilet facilities at the waterfall.

Group rates to the waterfall are available.
