Powerscourt Waterfall (Irish: Eas Chonaill) is a waterfall on the river Dargle  near Enniskerry, County Wicklow, in Ireland, located in a valley surrounded by Djouce Mountain and the Great Sugar Loaf The waterfall and surrounding valley are owned by the Powerscourt Estate. Powerscourt Waterfall can claim the accolade of the Highest Waterfall in Ireland as it is the highest one single 'horsetail' drop height and continuously flowing (year round) waterfall in the country.
In August 1821, during the visit of King George IV to Ireland, Richard Wingfield, 5th Viscount Powerscourt decided to dam the waterfall, so that he could release a torrent while the two stood on the bridge below the falls. The king was unable to leave a banquet at Powerscourt House; however when the water was finally released, the bridge was washed away.
