Ireland’s Adare Manor has been named the best hotel in the world

Ireland’s Adare Manor has been named the best hotel in the world

Adare Manor, the five star hotel and golf resort in Limerick, has been named as the Hotel of the Year 2018 at the Virtuoso Best of the Best Awards in Las Vegas. The hotel fought off competition from hotels in London, France, Marrakesh and Mauritius to win the title.

The awards ceremony took place on Wednesday night in Las Vegas at Virtuoso Travel Week, the largest luxury travel trade show in the world. There were four other luxury hotels up for the award, including the Berkeley in London; Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat in St Jean Cap Ferrat, France; One & Only Le Saint Geran in Mauritius, and Royal Mansour in Marrakesh.

Adare Manor recently reopened in November of 2017 after a 21-month long refurbishment and restoration. The hotel holds 104 bedrooms, a ballroom, the only La Mer Spa in Ireland or the UK, and its world-famous championship golf course.

Speaking after the win in Las Vegas on Wednesday night, Adare Manor chief executive Colm Hannon told the Irish Times: “The international competition within the luxury ‘Hotel of the Year’ category was outstanding this year and it is with great pride that we bring this worldwide award back to Ireland and Limerick.”

Rooms at Adare Manor start at €325 per room for bed & breakfast, rising to €1,995 for the Lady Caroline Dunraven Suite. We’ll start saving our pennies!
