Famous Irish hotel named world’s best resort

Ireland is world-renowned for its top-class hotels and resorts, one of which has gained the title of the best resort in the world for 2022.

One famous Irish hotel has been named the world’s best resort, according to Condé Nast Traveller’s 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards.

Beating out world-class resorts in the likes of Dubai, Brazil, and Indonesia, the Irish resort has firmly cemented its place among the finest places to stay.

With more and more travellers choosing to visit the Emerald Isle, holidaymakers from all over the world have been hugely impressed by the high quality of Irish hospitality.

Located in the west of Ireland in County Limerick, Adare Manor claimed the title of the best resort in the world, according to Condé Nast Traveller’s 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards.

The annual awards, now in their 35th year, give readers of the prestigious travel publication the chance to vote for their favourite global travel experiences.

With categories such as best resorts, countries, cities, hotels, airlines, trains, and more, the awards give an overview of the top-rated travel experiences from all around the world.

This year, over 24,000 readers cast their votes. So, it is a great achievement that the famous Irish hotel has been named the world’s best resort this year.

Adare Manor has long been a traveller favourite. The Irish hotel previously ranked among the best resorts in the world in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021. This year, however, the famous Irish hotel claimed the top spot to be named the world’s best resort.

Condé Nast Traveller writes, “Toss a pebble in any direction across Ireland’s 26 counties, and you’ll likely hit all manner of manor hotels. But when dashing across the island from Dublin to Limerick, the one to stop at is Adare.

“Trappings of heavy velvet and armour, superbly polished floors, and the satisfying crunch of a well-raked gravel drive are present.

“Yet this is a thoroughly modern reinvention of a country escape ‒ draft excluders be gone, with airtight double glazing and lashings of hot water in a tub overlooking a waterfall on the River Maigue.”

The list ranked the 50 best resorts in the world. The top ten picks were made up of stunning spots in Qatar, Rwanda, South Africa, Vietnam, Bali, Dubai, and Brazil.

Adare Manor was the only Irish location to rank on this year’s list. However, the Emerald Isle performed well across other categories of this year’s Reader’s Choice Awards.

Dublin’s The Marker Hotel and The Westbury ranked 49th and 36th, respectively, in the category of Best Hotels. Similarly, Galway claimed the seventh spot on the list of World’s Best Cities. Meanwhile, Ireland ranked 13th on the list of Best Countries.

So, are you planning your travels for 2023? If so, make sure to add Ireland ‒ and particularly Adare Manor ‒ to your bucket list.
