Ballyfin in Laois and Ashford Castle in Cong in Mayo were ranked in 39th and 59th place respectively on the list, which formed part of Travel and Leisure’s 2017 World’s Best Awards.

Nihi Sumba Island (formerly Nihiwatu) in Indonesia was named as the best hotel in the world, with hotels in French Polynesia, USA, New Zealand, Tanzania, South Africa and Argentina making up the top ten.

A survey by Travel and Leisure invited readers to vote for their favourite hotels, cities, hotels, airlines, transportation and more between November of last year and March of this year, with the cream of the crop making it to the final lists in all categories.
