Powerscourt Waterfall – Ireland’s Highest Waterfall
Set at the foot of the Wicklow Mountains, Powerscourt Waterfall is Ireland’s highest at 121m (398ft.) and is 5km from Powerscourt Estate and Gardens.
As you drive from the gate lodge towards the Waterfall you are surrounded by Beech, Oak, Larch and Pine trees, some of which were planted over 200 years ago. Look out for the Giant Redwoods, which are native to Northern California and grow up to 80m high.
Visitors are welcome to have a summer picnic or barbecue at Powerscourt Waterfall and there is a playground for children. There is plenty of wildlife to enjoy at the waterfall including birds such as the Chaffinch, Cuckoo, Raven and the Willow Warbler and the Sika Deer. You may even spot a red squirrel or two.
