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.
Four miles south of Enniskerry is Ireland's Highest Waterfall tumbling 398 feet into the Dargle Valley.
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.
There is at least one craft shop in the village, maybe two.
There are 2 or 3 restaurants in the village. Department of Social and Family Affairs, Store Street, Dublin 1
The Powerscourt Arms Hotel has a lounge and bar and is ideally located in the centre for a drink
There is an old hotel called the Powerscourt Arms Hotel located right in the centre of the village.
The Summerhill House Hotel which is about a mile outside of the village up past the church and then the first turn on the left is probably a bit more upmarket.
