Located just 15 miles southeast of Dublin in County Wicklow, the Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt is the ideal location for a town-and-country getaway. The 200-room hotel features spacious suites with floor-to-ceiling windows and marble soaking tubs, 2 championship golf courses, the only Gordon Ramsay restaurant in Ireland and a stunning ESPA spa, complete with a 20-foot Swarovski crystal-lit pool. The hotel sits on an historic estate that includes the 18th-century Palladian-style Powerscourt House and Gardens -- included in Patricia Schultz’s book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die.
