The reason for our stay in Enniskerry was to visit the finest gardens in Ireland at Powerscourt House and Gardens. Luckily, there was a very fine Marriott hotel located within walking distance of Powerscourt.
MARRIOTT POWERSCOURT HOTEL
The General Manager, David Webster, was most welcoming and helped make our stay so very memorable.
Restaurant Manager, Conor Stacey, and Executive Chef, Raman Kumar, prepared an absolutely delicious dinner for us, served with grace and charm by George.

POWERSCOURT HOUSE AND GARDENS
The house and gardens were commissioned in the early 1700s by the 1st Viscount Powerscourt. The gardens at Powerscourt are considered the finest in Ireland and not to be missed.
Bray is a small coastal town about five miles from Powerscourt. It was once a refined Victorian resort. Although Bray’s former glory has faded, it is still a quaint town with an excellent seaside and cliff walk plus lots of restaurants to choose from.
We thoroughly enjoyed our last delicious and authentic fish ‘n chips in Ireland at the seaside Barracuda Steak & Seafood Restaurant.
