Owned and run by the Slazenger family, for over 50 years, it is one of lreland’s premier luxury venues, located within 30 minutes of Dublin city centre at the foothills of the Sugarloaf Mountain.
With its stunning natural beauty and long tradition of hospitality, there is perhaps no more perfect a place to say “I do” than Powerscourt Estate. Our experienced team will work with you to create the wedding of your dreams.
Our mile long beech lined avenue sweeps up to the beautiful 18th century house. Guests enjoy exclusive access to the double height Georgian ballroom and garden view rooms, which overlook the award winning gardens. They are undoubtedly one of the most breath-taking rooms in the country.
Powerscourt Estate is a haven of peace and tranquility, full of rich history and natural beauty. Voted as one of the top three Gardens in the world by National Geographic, our magnificent scenery, inspired by different time and travels, provides the perfect backdrop for your guests to enjoy drinks, canapés and for those all-important photographic memories.
The spectacular marble entrance hall is licensed to hold civil ceremonies and offers a grand setting. The exposed brickwork is reminiscent of times past with the historic statues and urns giving a true sense of splendour.
Or alternatively, we can host your wedding blessing at the stunningly restored Bamburg Gates, located in the Rose Garden.
The impressive double height Georgian ballroom adds grandeur and elegance to this historic setting. The Ballroom can accommodate up to 168 seated guests.
The Garden View Rooms and private bar are stunning spaces, with panoramic views overlooking the breathtaking gardens and The Sugarloaf Mountain.
