“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.

In the interest of public safety and the absolute requirement for social distancing, we have decided to close the Estate, including the House, Gardens, River Walk and Waterfall, until further notice.
We have given the situation a great deal of thought and we understand that our visitors will be disappointed by this and we apologise for the inconvenience it may cause, particularly when being outside in nature is beneficial for mental and physical health.
At this time, we all have a social responsibility, including Powerscourt Estate, to minimise any harm to our friends, colleagues, and families. We will be reviewing this situation on an ongoing basis. Please keep an eye on the News Section of our website and social media for updates.
Thank you for your understanding and patience and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Estate before not too long. We hope you and your families are keeping safe.
