A land enriched by centuries of rich culture, rolling hills and the greenest of greens: This is Ireland. As one of this Romance Examiner’s favorite countries, Ireland is both romantic as it is historic, and a visit to this European gem will leave you wishing you never had to part from it. Pair Ireland’s magic with the magnificent and luxurious Ritz-Carlton, Powerscourt in County Wicklow and you’ve got the perfect recipe for love.
Located just 16 miles south from the capital city of Dublin, County Wicklow is fondly known as the Garden of Ireland. In fact, this Ritz property is located adjacent to one of the most scenic and historic estates in the country, as it sits next to the Powerscourt House and Gardens dating back to the 12th century. The tranquility, the luxury and the fabled village of Enniskerry nearby, will create the perfect Irish retreat for the perfect Irish experience.

What’s more, The Ritz-Carlton, Powerscourt recently received a Silver Award from the Green Hospitality Awards, as the hotel partnered with The Old Milking Parlour at Ballymurrin.

The Old Milking Parlour at Ballymurrin is the ideal Irish setting you and your sweetheart could ever dream of. With exposed stonework throughout, your own kitchen, living room and your very own personal milk bar – it’s the ultimate home away from home.
