We’ve all made sacrifices this year. But with restrictions easing, it’s time for some me-time. And this five-star luxury staycation package from Powerscourt Hotel and Spa is ideal for couples or friends looking to unwind. 


We all need something to look forward to. And with the current weather washout, our sights are set on autumn.

The five-star Powerscourt Hotel and Spa, nestled in a beautiful part of Co Wicklow, with stunning views of the Sugar Loaf Mountain and of course, the grand surrounds of the Powerscourt Estate and Gardens, is offering an Autumn Luxury Escape Package. And it’s ideal for couples looking to celebrate something special, or just spend some quality time together.

Imagine waking up in a deluxe, spacious 45 sq ft room with a walk-in wardrobe, and setting yourself up for the day after a rainforest shower in your marble bathroom, followed by breakfast in the Sika Restaurant.

Your relaxation can continue in the much-hyped Powerscourt Spa, which offers a range of ESPA treatments for couples and individuals, or you can rejuvenate in the 20-metre swimming pool that’s illuminated with Swarovski crystal lighting.

For lunch, why not take a romantic stroll through the historic Powerscourt Estate and admire the autumnal colours? There are plenty of walking trails to choose from on the 1,000-acre estate, or you can hop on a bicycle – free of charge – and explore the gardens on two wheels.

For the evening, you won’t beat a candlelit dinner-for-two at Sika Restaurant where you can sample delicious local delicacies in a setting of grandeur.

If this sounds like the perfect date night, visit powerscourthotel.com and book your Autumn Luxury Escape now.


The Autumn Luxury Escape at Powerscourt Hotel and Spa includes an overnight stay for two sharing in a Deluxe Room, breakfast for two in Sika Restaurant, access to swimming pool and health club, use of complimentary hotel bicycles. Overnight rates include complimentary access to the 20-metre Swarovski crystal-lit pool and car parking.
