Best hotels Ireland

All quality spots for a luxurious staycation.

The 12 best hotels in Ireland, according to Condé Nast Traveler readers, have been revealed.

The publication’s readers compiled votes for the best places to stay in the country and the results have thrown out some great hotels across the island, including three from Dublin, two from Kerry, two from Galway, two from Kildare and one each from Tipperary, Laois and Donegal.

Out of the many, many hotels around the country, coming out on top was The Westbury in Dublin, which received a whopping score of 98.3 among readers.

The hotel boasts probably the most central location you could ask for, just off Grafton Street and it’s no shock it came out on top.

In a post on Instagram, the people over at The Westbury said: “We are delighted and incredibly honoured to have been voted the best hotel in Ireland in the 2023 Condé Nast Readers’ Choice Awards.

“Our amazing and passionate team continue their dedication to creating meaningful and memorable experiences for our guests, and this award is recognition of their continued efforts. From all the team here at The Westbury, we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who took the time to vote for us.”
