Powerscourt Waterfall by Gfox228

Powerscourt Waterfall is a beautiful natural attraction set in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains near the town of Enniskerry. Only 5km from Powerscourt House and Gardens, the waterfall is Ireland’s highest at 121m. Driving from the gate lodge towards the waterfall, you will be surrounded by beech, oak, larch and pine trees, some of which were planted over 200 years ago. There are giant redwood or sequoia trees—native to California—that were planted at Powerscourt sometime after 1860. Powerscourt Waterfall is also haven for wildlife. The 7th Viscount Powerscourt established a deer park and in 1858 successfully introduced the Japanese Sika deer to the estate. Birdwatching enthusiasts will be on the lookout for some of the locals, the chaffinch, cuckoo, raven and the willow warbler. Note – there may be an entrance fee to access this shooting location.
