The World Travel Awards took place in the last few days, naming the best of the best around the world.
But moving up from individual rooms to entire buildings, the ceremony also announced the very best hotel in the entire world.
The nominees who didn’t quite take the top spot are as follows:
Conrad – Dublin
Dromoland Castle – Clare
Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa – Cork
InterContinental – Dublin
Powerscourt Hotel Resort Spa – Wicklow
The Clarence – Dublin
The Westin – Dublin
However, the 2018 winner – the same establishment that previously won this award back in 2015 – is Adare Manor in Limerick.

Meanwhile, on a global scale, Adare Manor didn’t make that shortlist, with hotels from Turkey, Kenya, Mexico, UAE, Hong Kong, the USA, India, Ecuador and more up for nomination, but ultimately, the World’s Leading Hotel Award was given to Armani Hotel Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
