Trivago have released the 100 locations in the world that have the best reputation among visitors – and the list includes two places in Ireland.
The hotel comparison website analysed reviews of hotels left by visitors to towns and cities across the world (to qualify for the list a town or city needed to have at least 130 hotels).
There was good news for Ireland as one of our favourite holiday spots – Killarney – made it into the top ten of Trivago’s list with an 85.17% positive ranking.
Killarney is one of the most beautiful areas in Ireland and is a big part of the reason that Irish people voted Co Kerry Ireland’s favourite domestic holiday destination.
Killarney is famous for its stunning views of unspoiled natural beauty spots including hills, forests, wildlife and lakes – including the Gap of Dunloe and Ladies View at the Lakes of Killarney. More on the Lakes of Killarney
