The five-star hotel in Limerick underwent a 21-month refurbishment and extension. The revamp included adding 42 new luxury rooms, a ballroom and a golf course designed by the renowned architect Tom Fazio.

Virtuoso was very complimentary about the refurb in its report. It said: “Maintaining the estate’s neo-Gothic architectural heritage and stonework was but a small portion of the fantastic overhaul.”

Virtuoso is one of the leading companies in travel reviews and luxury hotels. Its annual awards ceremony is a prestigious event in the calendar for all who work in the hospitality industry.

The awards shortlists are nominated by its readers, and then they vote to decide a winner.
