Pretty good actually. Possibly even best in the market. is an article about just this. Also Grails project leader Graeme Rocher couldn't say enough nice things about IDEA during his presentations at NFJS London. So I'm guessing he also thinks it's pretty good for developing in Groovy.

Hello John,

The Groovy plugin which is currently in beta provides quite powerful support for Groovy and Grails development - we aren't aware of any competitors that provide similarly advanced functionality.
