Adare Manor was voted the best resort in the world by the readers of the influential Condé Nast Traveler.
Five-star Hotel Co Limerick beat out the likes of Four Seasons Resort and Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai, Uxua Casa Hotel in Brazil and two luxury COMO resorts in Bali to claim first place.
The US Travel Bible’s 2022 Readers’ Choice Travel Awards ranks the world’s best hotels, cities, countries, trains, airlines, cruises and more.
Adare Manor is described as “a thoroughly modern reinvention of a rural retreat” and “a welcoming place without pretense – a remarkably understated lobby and check-in are pleasantly filled with a friendly mix of world travellers”.
Rooms at the resort, which has been at the heart of a multi-million dollar restart by JP McManus and his family and will host the Ryder Cup in 2027, start from €950 a night in November.
The news follows Adare Manor’s #1 spot in the Irish Independent Hot 100 list of the best hotels in Ireland for 2022.
A separate list of the 50 best hotels in the world was headed by Cheval Blanc St-Tropez in France. Conde Nast readers ranked The Marker at #49 and The Westbury at #36. Both are located in Dublin.
“From the second you enter The Westbury in Dublin and walk up the grand, forked staircase, it’s hard not to be impressed,” said Condé Nast of the Doyle Collection flagship, which has also become Ireland’s No. 1 hotel was chosen.
