Enniskerry

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Enniskerry is a small village in the County Wicklow quite near Dublin. It is still a quaint place worth seeing as it still has not been overrun by the ever spreading Dublin urban sprawl.

Get in[edit]

Enniskerry is close enough to Dublin to be served by the city buses – and far enough away for the bus route to go through magnificent rugged scenery in the narrow defile of The Scalp.

You can take either the 185 Bus from Bray or the 44/44c from Dublin city centre.

Get around[edit]

See[edit][add listing]

Four miles south of Enniskerry is Ireland's Highest Waterfall tumbling 398 feet into the Dargle Valley.

Powerscourt Gardens

Powerscourt Waterfall has been a major attraction since the 1760's and has been a favourite family picnic spot for years. Powerscourt is one of Europe’s great treasures and Ireland’s most famous House & Gardens. Gracing the Wicklow mountains, 20km from Dublin city centre, Powerscourt is a heritage property with a surprising difference.

The local St Patricks parish church and surrounding grounds which is just a few minutes walk up the hill southward out of the town is worth seeing.
