“We see ourselves as custodians of Powerscourt for future generations and our aim is leave it in a better state for them”.
We see sustainability as vital for the future of Powerscourt. We have programmes for tree planting, wild flowers, bee keeping and more as part of our environmental initiatives. Within Powerscourt Estate, an educational, climate change discovery centre was opened in 2018. The Cool Planet Experience was set with the aim of educating audiences about their carbon footprint and ways to reduce it.
