Ritz Carlton Powerscourt Voted Most Romantic in Ireland

The Ritz-Carlton, Powerscourt has been voted the most romantic destination in Ireland by travel web site Gayot.com (www.gayot.com ) two years in a row since opening in 2007. To celebrate both this and the onset of a new romantic season, when many surprise proposals are made, the hotel is pushing out the romantic boundaries by launching a new Romantic Suite, The Suite With No Number, unlike any of the other 200 guest rooms in the hotel. This new luxury suite is the answer for couples looking to mark a special occasion, by staying in a room where decadence is the order of the day.

An ambiance of self indulgence, romance and fun greet guests as they enter the Romantic Suite. Two gold chaise longues and a petal filled bath for two in the main lounge set the mood, added to by the chandeliers and candles flickering throughout.  A cocktail bar offers a selection of delicious recipes for guests to try out before dining à deux on the heated terrace whilst enjoying the privacy and tranquility of the Romantic Suite.

Comprising of a decadently furnished bedroom with red silk throws on the bed, luxurious rugs and direct access to the heated patio overlooking the Sugar Loaf Mountain, this bedroom alone encourages guests to leave normality behind and enjoy a new world of luxury for the night. Enjoy a private bath overlooking the countryside or a steam room and rain shower for two. Amenities such as Champagne and chocolates can be delivered to the room or guests can try the strawberries and cream spa treatment, as therapists make a personal visit to the Suite With No Number. Relax as music plays in the background and guests get the opportunity to hide away from the rest of the world in a cocoon where no one can reach them...

Prices are from €680 per couple sharing and include one night’s accommodation in the Romantic Suite with breakfast the following morning, a Strawberries & Cream Treatment for two and a Romantic Turndown that evening.
