Ireland has the world’s best luxury hotel
Ireland already boasts the best hotel in the world in Ashford Castle and now it can add the world’s best Luxury Country House Hotel to its proud list of top quality attractions.
Dunbrody Country House Hotel in Co Wexford received the prestigious award from the Luxury Travel Guide website.
Dunbrody is run by husband and wife team Kevin and Catherine Dundon. Proud Mr Dundon said: “Since opening our doors in 1997, Catherine and I have strived to deliver excellence in all we do here at Dunbrody House.
“This award will hopefully focus increased interest in the Hook Peninsula, an idyllic part of the country. It marks the start of an exciting year ahead for us and our team at the hotel.”
The Luxury Travel Guide awards are voted for by the site’s half a million online subscribers after nominees are selected based on a number of factors regarding luxury travel.
Dunbrody was recognised for its “authentic charm, relaxed ambience and top class dining experience”.
The award is further proof that Ireland is one of the leaders in world tourism. The country welcomes millions of visitors each year, and the industry is a key part of the Irish economy.
In 2015 Ashford Castle in Co Mayo was named the world’s best hotel by the Best of the Best awards. Although the two awards are not handed out by the same organisation, the Irish winners prove the high standard of service and luxury that is offered throughout the country.
