Hotel of the year award for Adare Manor
Ireland's 5* castle and golf resort receives global recognition
5* hotel and golf resort, Adare Manor, has been declared ‘Hotel of the Year 2018’ in the highly competitive and globally renowned Virtuoso ‘Best of the Best Awards 2018’.
The Awards ceremony took place last night in Las Vegas as part of Virtuoso Travel Week, which is the largest luxury travel trade show in the world, as Adare Manor scooped the most coveted award of the night.
It follows their recent successes at awards, which keep on coming and included a Golf Digest Editor’s Choice Award (‘Best Golf Resorts in GB and Ireland 2018’), as well as making it on Conde Nast Traveler’s ‘Hot List’ as one of the ‘Best New Hotels in the World’.
Adare Manor reopened last November after an extensive restoration, refurbishment and expansion programme over 21 months, that has included a new Tom Fazio designed golf course.
The newly designed luxury resort now features a new 42-bedroom wing, bringing the total number to 104 bedrooms. The Spa at Adare Manor is Ireland and the UK’s first and only La Mer Spa, making it one of the eleven La Mer spas worldwide.
Adare Manor recently reopened its newly rebuilt, redesigned and remodeled golf course, which was led by world-renowned golf course architect Tom Fazio and is fast becoming regarded among the top golfing resorts in Europe and worldwide. This was followed by the opening of the stylishly relaxed dining experience at The Carriage House Restaurant, Terrace and Bar, which opened last spring.
Commenting on another great achievement for the resort, Adare Manor’s CEO, Colm Hannon said: “The entire team at Adare Manor are absolutely delighted and very honoured to be voted ‘Hotel of the Year 2018’ by the most prestigous group of agents from around the world in the Virtuoso ‘Best of the Best Awards’. The international competition within the luxury ‘Hotel of the Year’ category was outstanding this year and it is with great pride that we bring this worldwide award back to Ireland and Limerick.
“We are delighted to receive this worldwide recognition, as it is testament to the wonderful resort we have here today and its special surroundings, which were meticulously restored and enhanced with newly designed features, following significant investment from its owners.
“I would like to say a very special thank you to every individual member of our team at Adare Manor, across all departments at the resort. We could not have achieved this extremely special award without the passion and absolute commitment to perfection that each person on our team demonstrates in the way that they welcome and take care of our guests every day.”
