We spent 2 nights for our 1st wedding anniversary. From when we arrived, to checkout, the staff couldn’t do enough for us.
The hotel is fab, spotless, and exudes luxury.
The staff are amazing, especially Clea (reception), Jamie (Sika-dinner), and Trinity (Sika-breakfast).
The food blew us away. As vegans we usually have low expectations in order to avoid disappointment. We had THE best 3 course meal in Sika restaurant. It clearly showed thought and effort, plenty of choice, was filling & delicious. Breakfast was also a lovely surprise. The vegetarian breakfast is vegan (no eggs). I’m so glad more hotels are offering vegan sausages. We asked if any pastries were vegan. We got the usual answer that no they weren’t. However, Trinity, returned with a plate of sweet treats (flapjacks & choc tart) served with a selection of berries. This is 5* service! The only issue we had was in the bar. It’s the same vegan menu from Sika (fine dining), but we were after something more casual - curry/burger. A tweak to the menu in this regard would really make Powerscourt a vegan paradise.
You can do as little or as much as you want. The pool is relaxing & calming & we also used the hotel bikes to cycle around the estate, house and gardens. There are nice walks and the waterfall is a short drive. We also did the Greystones-Bray Cliff walk.
We don’t stay in hotels more than once as we like to try new places, but we would return to Powerscourt in a heartbeat. Thank you for a wonderful anniversary
