Powerscourt Hotel To Get €250k Outdoor Wedding Venue

Co. Wicklow’s Powerscourt Hotel is to get a new €250,000 outdoor wedding venue as part of a €750,000 upgrade of the resort’s facilities.

According to The Irish Times, the 240-seater venue will be comprised of a 1,600 square metre amphitheatre with tiered seating and picturesque views of both the Sugar Loaf mountain and the adjacent 1,000-acre estate.

Furthermore, the amphitheatre will be equipped with a modern sound system and high-speed broadband, and will also be available for events such as product launches, team building exercises, concerts and outdoor cinema screenings. It will be located alongside the hotel’s 6,000 square foot ballroom and 1,100 square foot of conference and meeting space.

The news of the new wedding venue comes as the Powerscourt Hotel celebrates 10 years of being in business. Additionally, the hotel’s Sugar Loaf Lounge has undergone a €500,000 refurbishment which has seen the addition of new bespoke furniture designed by Irish manufacturers, as well as increasing the capacity of its bar and restaurant area to 120 people.
