THE BEST hotel in Ireland has been revealed, as chosen by the international travel company Tripadvisor.
Ireland is well-known for its many fantastic hotels and B&Bs, from the quaint and homely to the large and luxurious, and this year's Tripadvisor awards has seen Ireland win big in multiple categories.
The Travellers' Choice Awards named a B&B near the Cliffs of Moher the best B&B in Ireland and among the best in the world, and no less than three hotels in Dingle, County Kerry, were awarded the titles of some of the best in Europe.
In choosing the winners of the Travellers' Choice Awards 2021, experts at Tripadvisor trawled through millions of reviews of hotels and B&Bs across the world to find the ones that stood out above the rest: "those that go the extra mile, the most wanderlust worthy, the places that make a holiday".
And in the County Kerry town of Killarney, the one that stood out above all the rest was The Killarney Park Hotel, now able to boast the title of Best Hotel in Ireland.
The five-star luxury hotel is nestled in the heart of the fantastic town and right beside the Killarney National Park, which offers some of the most gorgeous lake, forest and mountain views in Ireland.
And from the over 2,000 reviews on Tripadvisor, it's easy to see why it was chosen as Ireland's top hotel, with a 5.0 rating and many praising the friendly staff, breathtaking location and top class service.
Speaking as the results of the Travellers' Choice Awards Tripadvisor spokesperson, Hayley Coleman, said:
"Now that travel throughout Ireland is back on and the nation eagerly awaits the freedom to travel abroad again, Irish holidaymakers will want to start getting plans in motion for what could possibly be the most longed for trip of their life.
"This celebration of the best of the best hotels around the world should serve as the perfect guide for discovering places to stay that are fit for the holiday of a lifetime."
