The waterfall is a beautiful, natural waterfall and the highest in Ireland. Also known as Enniskerry waterfall, the falls are surrounded by the Powerscourt Estate, which is a family-owned estate that has been in operation since 1735, and home to the powerscourt hotel and spa.

The Powerscourt Waterfall walk starts from the car park at the top of the hill on which the house stands and takes you down to a bridge crossing over to an island with two lakes at its centre. It's an easy walk that takes visitors through woodland, past the ruins of an old mill and across a bridge to the base of the falls. Visitors can then take a steep climb to see more of the falls before returning to their starting point via a different route.
