social distancing may not have been on your 2020 to-do list, Powerscourt
Townhouse Centre is here to show you how you can still enjoy Dublin Town with
your very own private walking tour. Your favourite Powerscourt cafés,
restaurants, pubs, museums, cinemas and shops may be closed for now, but we are
here to remind you why our little fair city has still managed to maintain its
trademark Irish magic with its rich history and architectural delights via our
personalised city tour, right on the Powerscourt Townhouse doorstep.
Reconnect with your local surroundings and remember that fresh air and a dose of brain stimulation goes a long way. So why not take a much-needed break from working from home and begin to explore the hidden gems of our beautiful Baile Átha Cliath.
St. Stephen’s Green
Stop number one on the Powerscourt Townhouse Tour is Dublin’s most iconic garden, St. Stephen’s Green, the perfect escape from life’s everyday stress and chaos. While it may boast luscious greenery, a playground, an abundance of benches and a mini lake, the 22,000 sq ft green space is more than just a pretty park. St. Stephen’s Green has played host to residential aristocrats, rejected a name change from Queen Victoria, and has played an important role in the 1916 Easter Rising. Today you can stroll around the leafy surroundings with a hot cup of coffee and take in the rare peace and quiet.
Oscar Wilde’s Childhood Home
A short distance away is the childhood home of Dublin’s wittiest literary figure, Oscar Wilde, an unmissable stop for even the most casual history buff. The renowned writer resided in the house until he graduated from Trinity College Dublin and left for Oxford in 1874. You won’t need to step inside the beautifully restored Georgian townhouse to experience its timeless charm. Stop by the exterior today for a postcard-worthy photograph that’ll age just as well as The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Just a short skip and hop from Powerscourt Centre, Ha’Penny Bridge is the first pedestrian bridge to have connected Dublin’s North and South via the Liffey in 1816. The quirky name comes from the ha’penny required of 19th century pedestrians to cross the bridge. While on an average day you may struggle to push through the crowds to get your perfect Instagram shot, you can be rest assured that March 2020 is the perfect time to make your followers jealous. O
Next up, we are off to The Dublin Spire, or the ‘Monument of Light’, which was erected in 2003, replacing Nelson’s Pillar as the city’s default meeting point. While any Dubliner worth their Lyons’ Tea will have crossed the Spire at some point or another, how many times have you stopped to admire its architectural elegance and staggering 120m height? On a windy March afternoon, you might even notice that the Spire sways with a strong breeze. Visit the Spire to find out why its technological brilliance makes it worth the €4million price tag.
Molly Malone Statue
While you’re there, it is worth visiting one of our city’s greatest statues. The Lord Mayor of Dublin presented Molly Malone to the city on June 13th 1988 as part of Dublin Millennium celebrations. Originally located on Grafton Street, Molly and her cart now reside on Suffolk Street, just around the corner from Powerscourt Townhouse Centre. Don’t forget to listen to her namesake song on your mobile for good measure!
The last stop on our tour is Europe’s largest enclosed public park, home to the President of Ireland, the US Ambassador, Dublin Zoo as well as Dublin’s most well-fed fallow deer. Escape the quarantine blues with one of the park’s scenic cycle or walking routes, or alternatively check out Arbour Hill military cemetery to view the burial site of executed leaders from the Easter Rising. Whichever you choose, you’ll be grateful to step outside in the fresh Spring air.
Powerscourt Townhouse Centre sends love and hugs to our wonderful community. We hope you are all keeping safe and healthy and we look forward to welcoming you back in when we reopen our doors again soon. Until then, stay safe and look after each other.
SO Fine Art Editions, one of Ireland’s leading contemporary art galleries, located on the second floor of the Powerscourt Centre, will be hosting the Dr Barbara Rae exhibition for one month from this Thursday 27th February until Thursday 26th March.
Bringing vibrancy into the dull month of February, the prolific Dr Barbara Rae, Royal Academician painter and master printmaker, will be exhibiting her recent works at SO Fine Art Editions in South William Street’s Powerscourt Centre. The exhibition includes works that summon the history of place, people and the passing of time with powerful, fluid brush strokes and outstanding colour.
During journeys to Ireland, Italy, France, Spain, Southwest USA and the Arctic, Rae’s exhibition accumulates her inspiration. Before beginning to sketch, she spent weeks meeting people in each particular location, researching local history and delving into the spirit of the place. She then brought that research back to develop it into prints and paintings in her Edinburgh studio. The exhibition will include screen prints, etchings and monoprints from such travels.
One notable example is Rae’s 2018 exhibition ‘The Northwest Passage’ which began in 2013, followed with a series of expeditions into the Arctic. The Orcadian cartographer and explorer Dr. John Rae inspired this journey, resulting in a series of works that were imbued with history while retaining the contemporary intensity that is a signature of Rae’s work. The exhibition premiered at the Royal Scottish Academy before travelling to the Pier Arts Centre, Orkney, and Canada House, London, in autumn 2018.
Barbara Rae studied at the Edinburgh College of Art. After some years as a secondary school art teacher, she went onto lecturing in drawing and painting at Charles Rennie Macintosh’s School of Art in Glasgow. Rae is a recipient of numerous awards, scholarships, and honorary degrees, her work is exhibited in national museums, and public and private collections the world over.
We at Powerscourt Centre are honoured to be showing this unique selection of Barbara Rae’s work in SO Fine Art Editions and encourage you to drop by before the month is out.

What an amazing year this has been for Irish Whiskey and the future looks bright.

They also have a 10% discount on any tours extended until the end of January using the discount code XMAS10!
With the release of so many great whiskeys this year, they couldn’t try them all, but they did try! This year really saw some exceptional releases such as the Redbreast Dream Cask series, Redspot 15 years old and a possible favourite, the Glendalough 13 Mizanara release. They looked back to some amazing drams that won awards this year, like the Irishman 17-year old and Sonny Molloy’s Redbreast.
This was a hard year to narrow it down to 12 as it was one of the most exciting years for Irish Whiskey.
Redbreast Dream Cask Birdhouse Limited Edition 32 Year Old
Redbreast Dream Cask 32 Year Old represents the perfect contribution of flavours through a careful maturation journey, rounded out by a particularly sublime sherry butt. This is a Redbreast Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey All Sherry Single Cask bottling.
As a Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey it has those wonderful spices that are so characteristic of single pot still distillate.”– Billy Leighton, Master Blender
This is a truly rare and unique whiskey, Redbreast Dream Cask is a dream that started 32 years ago, from the first parcel of Redbreast 21 ever laid down. Back in 2017 Dream Cask was unveiled by Redbreast Master Blender Billy Leighton to mark a special celebration of World Whiskey Day.
The Irishman 17 Year Old Single Malt
Crowned overall Irish Whiskey of the Year at the annual event, the accolade tops off what has been a fantastic year for The Irishman 17-Year-Old Single Malt. It was also named Best Irish Single Cask Whiskey at the Irish Whiskey Awards on top of taking home a Masters medal at the Irish Whiskey Masters earlier this year and being crowned Irish Single Cask of the Year by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2019.
Sonny Molloys RedBreast 16 Year Old
This is a real contender for #1 this year. Aged in a 500 litre Spanish Oak sherry cask, only 570 bottles have been yielded. The result is a limited-edition and truly collectable whiskey. Just 200 bottles will be released for general sale by Sonny Molloy’s this Friday, November 16th, originally launched at the exclusive price of €345. Each bottle forms part of an exclusive gift set, featuring two specially engraved Galway Irish Crystal tumblers and a certificate of authenticity, signed by Master Distiller, Brian Nation. Read More…
Glendalough Mizunara 13 Year Old
The winner of World Best Irish Whiskey, was the first Irish Whiskey released with a Japanese minuzara finish. Extremely rare, and expensive, virgin Japanese mizunara, comes from Hokkaido, the rugged most northern island of Japan. The mizunara puncheon amplifies much of what is already there while layering on more vanilla smoothness, sandalwood notes and even a little coconut, or gorse flower if you’re from our neck of the woods. This is a whiskey that’s hard to make. It is unique in terms of what is being done with Irish whiskey and it is very limited. This is one to savour.
Red Spot 15 Years Old Single Pot Still
This one is special, Red Spot was Last seen 50 years ago, the re-imagining of Red Spot began in the early 2000’s when Marsala fortified wine casks were procured from the Florio winery in Sicily. In 2004, these were filled with a five-year-old Bourbon matured single pot still Irish whiskey.
Method & Madness Single Pot Still Whiskey In French Chestnut
This is quite a unique and special single pot still whiskey. Thanks to our Irish regulations our whiskey has to be aged in wood; making no one wood specific to us, hence the ability to play around. This is the main mantra for the Method and Madness range. This pot still is finished in chestnut casks sourced from the Isére region in France.
This a great example of a marriage between a good sherry bodega and whiskey producer. Enjoy and avoid adding water as it will dull it. Some Irish Whiskey is perfect straight from the bottle and this is a fine example;
Tullamore DEW 14 Year Old Single Malt
A triple-distilled Irish single malt that has been patiently aged for up to 14 years in ex-Bourbon barrels and then finished in 4 different cask types being old ex-Oloroso Sherry Butts, ex-Port Pipes and ex-Madeira Drums for a minimum of 6 months for a perfect balance and then bottled at 41.3%
This is a fan favorite on all of their tours, once you try it you’ll be a fan too. A really complex whiskey that is perfectly balanced. It is great paired with cheese!
Green Spot Château Léoville Barton
Two very distinguished and admired families come together and marry their talents. Mitchells and Léoville Barton. This whiskey is aged in Cabernet Sauvignon Casks from Château Léoville Barton.
On the nose this pot still whiskey sings beautifully. With apricots mingling among the wild strawberries and ripe autumnal fruits. It leads you on to some earthy notes to floral & spicy touches with a hint of vanilla. It has quite a seductive nose.
On the palate you get this delicious hit of honeyed fruits but with the fresh floral and berry note. It tastes full but not heavy. The vanilla and spicy tones join in to give it another dimension. Add some bramble and barley giving you quite an elegant whiskey that will captivate you from the first sip. It does soften out a bit with the water try it out soon as this edition might disapper from our shelves before you know it. Château Léoville Barton.
Egan’s Legacy Reserve 2
The new Egan’s Legacy Reserve 2, has been aged for 16 years in ex-American bourbon barrels. It was then finished in ex-Banyuls casks, which were used to age a sweet wine made from old vine grapes on the slopes of the Catalan Pyrenees in France. The production process, known in France as mutage, is similar to that used to make Port. Alcohol is added to the must to halt fermentation while sugar levels are still high, preserving the natural sweetness of the grape. The wines are then matured in oak barrels. The resulting flavor profile has a chocolate nose and a sweet and fruity palate that concludes with a slight cassis finish.
Jameson 18 Cask Strength Bow St
Jameson 18 Year Old Bow Street Cask Strength was launched earlier this year to much excitement; this whiskey is a rare release and is bottled only once per year, at cask strength. It is a unique blend of rare pot still and grain Irish whiskeys produced at the Midleton distillery. These whiskey’s were aged in a mix of sherry and bourbon barrels. They were married in the Midleton distillery in county cork before their final finishing of at least 6 months in fresh Bourbon barrels at the Jameson Distillery Bow Street in Dublin. You have to visit Bow Street to really taste every element…
Midleton Very Rare 2019
The 36th edition in the renowned and highly collectable range has been masterfully blended from whiskeys laid down at Midleton Distillery, Co Cork, over the past four decades. Crafted by Master Distiller Brian Nation, Midleton Very Rare 2019 combines only hand-selected single pot still and single grain Irish whiskeys. This is Irish Whiskey of exceptional quality and rarity within the Midleton inventory. With each whiskey having been matured exclusively in lightly-charred ex-bourbon American oak barrels for between 13 and 34 years. 2019 marks the oldest collection of casks used to create a Midleton Very Rare.
Pearse Lyons 5 Year Old
And now for last place on the 12 Best Irish Whiskeys of 2019. They choose the first new five-year age statement Irish whiskey in Ireland in more than 25 years. Gearoid Cahill, Head Distiller at the Pearse Lyons Distillery said, “The release of the Pearse Single Malt 5-Year-Old Irish Whiskey marks a historic milestone in the re-evolution of the Irish Whiskey distilling industry. Using Irish malted barley and our own special yeast strain, the whiskey spirit was produced on Pearse Lyons unique copper pot stills whose unusual design is credited with giving the whiskey a special character.”
So lets raise a glass to Pearse Lyons, Irish Whiskey and the amazing future that lies ahead!! Sláinte
