Walking in Powerscourt Waterfall (Ireland)
The Powerscourt Waterfall, the highest waterfall in Ireland with 121m high, is located at the foot of the Wicklow Mountains. On a private property, in a wide green park where Dargle river meanders, their access is restricted, with the obligation to purchase ticket to admire this magnificent natural attraction.
After passing the gate, we found a road surrounded by oaks, pine trees, beeches, larches and giant redwoods, some trees with more than 200 years.
The road ends at the foot of the escarpment where the from the top falls a huge column of water that impresses who comes here. This first feeling is fantastic.
Despite being late in the afternoon, the park has still a few dozen people walking around, taking advantage of the last hours of daylight with the sound of the water that thunderously found the rocks along the riverbed.

In warmer weather, this is the ideal place for a picnic with family or friends. Through the green fields on well-defined trails, or follow the Dargle margins respecting all the habitat and wildlife that can be found here, it’s one of the best ways to occupy a full day in this region.
And so, this is my last day in Ireland. I wait close to the waterfall until the sun hides behind the mountain. Tomorrow morning I will come back home home with my luggage full of good memories.
