Beautiful views. Service mediocre. Food extremely average. Poached salmon with crushed potatoes was bland and flavourless. I never season food after it's been served but ubfortunately had to reach for the salt and pepper. At no point during our meal were we asked how it...More

I booked this for a family lunch. It's an elegant, restaurant with beautiful views of the Sugar Loaf mountains, an all-glass vista which was really breath-taking on the day we visited. Service was slow and we waited over 10 minutes for a wait staff to...More

Like many families dining we choose to eat in the more relaxed and spacious Sugar Loaf Lounge restaurant. A tasty kids menu with good variety appealed. The seafood chowder on the lunch menu is amazing. Plentiful fresh fish combined with the nicest selection of breads...More

The venue can become quite busy, particularly on Sunday. Great place for tea and a sweet or light dining. Salads are flavourful (both salmon and chicken) with the chicken tender and moist. Service is fantastic. Staff do a great job, in spite of being so...More

Located on the lobby level of Powerscourt Hotel, our Sugar Loaf Lounge is perfect for meeting, greeting and watching the world go by. Serving traditional Afternoon Tea daily and cocktails each evening, the Lounge is a haven of hospitality, with an all-day menu of casual dining too. Furnished and appointed in a style of gracious Georgian living, there's a traditional warmth to the Sugar Loaf Lounge our guests often comment on. Of course, the spectacular scenery outside, framed by the vast curved windows offers a breathtaking counterpoint to the intimate welcome within. Here there's always something to talk about. Reservations for Afternoon Tea are recommended. We look forward to welcoming you.
