Weekends are great, most of us spend all week fantasising about that Friday feeling. Worst thing is when Friday finally comes around your left scratching your head trying to figure out what to do. So if the weather is with us this weekend why not take a trip to Wicklow and visit the Powerscourt Waterfall.
I was there during the summer on a day that I just wanted to get out of the house but had no idea what to do. So I went for a drive and after going through some twisty country roads with no help from a GPS I would like to add! I ended up here.
You will be greeted by a small house just in off a winding road, there cars line up next to a small ticket stall. Then you drive deeper into the mountain until you reach an opening. You will see a small kiosk tucked into the woodland and a parking area.
Powerscourt Waterfall has a wonderful atmosphere and if you are smart about it you might bring a disposable BBQ to really get the most out of the day. If you have kids with you, there is an amazing playground so you are safe in the knowledge that your little monsters won't be getting feed up with this place! If you are more into your walking trails there is a fab trail that's not too demanding.
Overall Powerscourt Waterfall is a place I will be visiting again but a little more prepared. Whats great about this place is that there is something for everyone to do! I have to say it was great to see kids playing in the stream something that you don't see much of any more!
