Autograph Collection, Marriott International’s exclusive portfolio of upscale, independent hotels, has announced the debut of the Powerscourt Hotel in County Wicklow. Representing Ireland’s first Autograph Collection hotel, the five-star property stands out thanks to its Palladian-style architecture and luxury amenities, including a 20m Swarovski crystal-lit indoor pool.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for Autograph Collection in Europe, and a significant event for us in Ireland,” says Amy McPherson, president and managing director for Marriott International in Europe. “Our European portfolio of Autograph Collection hotels offer travellers an enviable range of artistic, culinary and cultural adventures, and this magnificent hotel is a hugely powerful addition.”
