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.

  • Avoid the rip off entry fee by parking for free in Djouce woods and hike down for 30 minutes. A beautiful piece of scenery should be free to view.

  • Great place to visit with the family. They is a mall shop to buy food, tables for picnic, toilets, parking and playground. The waterfall is amazing. Lovely place. You need to pay for individual or family tickets. Around 16 euro per car and family.
  • This beautiful waterfall will amaze with it's beauty. There is a possibility to go by car as the place offers interior car park. If there is some sun, the place will just radiate beauty. Clean air and nature will never disappoint. And for those who love a good BBQ, this place is just the perfect one for an escape from the noise of the city.
