Explore Powerscourt Waterfall

Powerscourt Waterfall - Search Nearby - Added by Sonja Saxe

At 398' (121m) Powerscourt Waterfall is the tallest waterfall in Ireland. A roughly 45 minute trip from Dublin, this is a perfect spot for a picnic.

The Powerscourt Waterfall grounds are beautiful; picture an incredibly green wooded area with a towering waterfall cascading down a rock wall and then flowing into a gentle creek running through a forest that is full of chirping birds. Can you imagine a spot more perfect for a picnic? It's also a great place for kids because there is a playground. There is a concession kiosk that operates in the summer months and sells ice cream, hot dogs, coffee, and tea just in case you forgot to pack something in your picnic!

Located less than an hour from Dublin this is an easy half-day trip. I would recommend arriving early to beat the crowds, but not too early. Note the hours below:

  • Nov-Feb: 10:30am - 4:00pm
  • Mar/Apr/Sept/Oct: 10:30am - 5:30pm
  • May-Aug: 9:30am - 7:00pm
