The MHL Hotel Collection has agreed to acquire the 5-star Powerscourt Hotel Resort & Spa in Powerscourt, Co Wicklow, from Sugarloaf Investments Ltd (a consortium comprising Midwest Holding, Tetrarch Capital and Brehon Capital Partners) for an undisclosed sum. The transaction is subject to approval from the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission.

Owned by a partnership comprising John Malone, John Lally and Paul Higgins, the MHL Collection comprises 11 4-star and 5-star hotels, almost 2,000 bedrooms and over 1,800 staff at locations in Dublin (7), Galway (3) and Limerick (1). Acquisitions over recent years include the InterContinental and the Westin in Dublin, as well as The Galmont in Galway (formerly the Radisson Blu).

Located alongside two championship golf courses and the renowned Powerscourt Estate Gardens, Powerscourt is a 30-minute drive from Dublin city centre. Opened in 2006 as a Ritz Carlton, the hotel was acquired in 2013.
