The picturesque village of Enniskerry is located to the east of the Wicklow Way. Although its proximity to Dublin has made it a much sought-after out of town residential location, the heart of the village retains its elegant Victorian characteristics and distinctive features These include the clock tower dating from 1843, erected as a memorial to the Wingfield family then owners of the nearby Powerscourt Estate and the Church of Ireland church.
Powerscourt House and Gardens, located at the southern end of the village, is a magnificent 18th century property. The house now incorporates a range of speciality shops as well as a restaurant, while a golf course and Ritz-Carlton hotel have been developed on the property, without in any way diminishing the attraction of the original formal gardens.
In a 2011 BBC TV series entitled "Terry Wogan's Ireland", Terry visited the village where his father's family was from - Enniskerry.
