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.
