The five star hotel that hosted one of Rosanna Davison's three wedding bashes last summer recorded "a strong trading performance in 2014".

That is according to a spokesman for the operators of Powerscourt Hotel and spa in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow.

He commenting yesterday on new accounts which show that the business recorded pre-tax losses of €4.7m in 2013.

Figures lodged for Sugarloaf Ventures show that the firm recorded the loss after revenues topped €13.4m between February 21 and December 31, 2013.

That year was the hotel's first year of operation under new ownership.

A spokesman for owners Tetrarch Capital said that "2013 was a year of transition for the business as we moved from the Ritz Carlton to the Powerscourt brand. We have invested significant resources in creating a new and attractive customer experience, the success of which is being shown by a strong trading performance in 2014 and further improvement into the start of 2015."
