If you’re a fan of the show “Hell’s Kitchen”, then you’ll also be a fan of The Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt, County Wicklow, home of “Gordon Ramsay at Powerscourt” the master chef’s very own restaurant in Ireland. Stay at this luxurious hotel in Ireland for the great food and the great golfing.
Found on the lush east coast of Ireland, The Ritz Carlton Powerscourt Hotel is the place to stay if you’re in the mood for a relaxing spring golf excursion, or a not-so-relaxing yelling match with Chef Gordon Ramsay and/or his disciples. This gorgeous estate is tucked in the woodlands of County Wicklow, a peaceful, quiet area in the world’s greenest country and home to some of the world’s finest cuisine.
With 200 guest rooms in total (124 suites and 23 club-level rooms), you’ll have no problem finding a room that suites your needs. Rooms are an average size of 700 square feet (some of the largest hotel rooms in Ireland), and feature floor to ceiling windows, gorgeous views of the countryside and terraces so you can enjoy the fresh air.
No trip to The Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt is complete without a meal or three at Gordon Ramsay at Powerscourt. The restaurant opened in October 2007 and is Ramsay’s first signature restaurant in Ireland. Found on the third floor of the hotel, the restaurant seats 82 guests and offers quite astounding views of the hotel’s surroundings. If you’re at the hotel in the summer, take advantage of the terrace, which seats 48.
You might also enjoy the restaurant’s two private dining rooms, if you’re with a group, or the private wine room.
Depending on Gordon Ramsay’s schedule, it might be more likely that you’ll run in to Jonathan MacIver, the Chef de Cuisine, than the Hell’s Kitchen star himself.
We know MacIver has the skills, but does he have the colourful language? Find out by getting a seat at the Chef’s Table, which is set up in the kitchen and accommodates 10 guests.
