Where2Golf says: 

Powerscourt Golf Club (East course): In scenery reminiscent of the Perthshire Hills that surround Gleneagles in Scotland, the Powerscourt Estate is home to 36-holes of excellent golf. The East course, like the West, combines a fine mix of undulating holes in a relatively open, and occasionally wooded landscape.

The layout includes copious bunkering, which lends clear definition to the good-width fairways. For those really wayward shots, thick grassy rough awaits. The well-defended greens run fast and true.

Scenic views onto the surrounding Wicklow Hills, the pointed-peak of Sugarloaf Mountain, a glimpse or two of the Irish Sea and the tranquility of the famous Powerscourt Estate all combine to ensure a thoroughly enjoyable setting, whichever of the two courses you play.
