    Ashford Castle
    Cong
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1775 reviewsTripAdvisor (1775)
    Free WiFi

    Ashford Castle, which was originally built in 1228 and reopened in April 2015 after undergoing a two-year renovation, is located in Cong, Ireland (roughly 25 miles northwest of Galway). Recent guests said that they felt like royalty during their stays, but they warned that even a few days of living like a king doesn't come cheap. A tourist attraction in its own right, the fully restored Ashford Castle sports an assortment of luxury amenities, including a 32-seat cinema, a state-of-the-art spa and complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the property. Visitors can also enjoy more historically significant activities, which range from exploring the castle's gardens to taking an introductory falconry course. Rooms and suites are all lavishly decorated with touches like fresh flowers, monogrammed bed linens and custom carpets. Digs are also decked out with more modern perks, including flat-screen TVs, Bluetooth speakers, electronic blinds and USB chargers. There are also three on-site restaurants for foodies to explore. The George V Dining Room provides upscale meals in an elegant dining room, and Cullen's at the Cottage serves local and international fare seasonally. Alternatively, guests can dig into Irish cuisine in The Dungeon, which features a curved stone ceiling and period-inspired decorations.

    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1857 reviewsTripAdvisor (1857)

    Adare Manor reopened in 2017 after an extensive 18-month renovation, which brought a new wing with additional bedrooms, a new ballroom and a recently redesigned golf course by renowned architect Tom Fazio. And guests say the attention to detail in the refurbishment is exquisite, and well worth the high cost of staying here. Travelers praise the well-appointed rooms and suites, the food and wine quality at the on-site dining venues and the exceptionally accommodating and attentive staff members. Adare Manor houses 104 rooms that are decorated in tasteful, warm decor and feature monogrammed linens, goose down bedding, bars filled with complimentary drinks and snacks, tea and coffee makers, free Wi-Fi access and flat-screen TVs. Outside the rooms, you'll find there are plenty of amenities to keep you entertained. Adare Manor has a cinema that screens movies; an indoor pool and fitness center; and a spa, plus visitors can enjoy archery, cycling, woodland walks and historical tours all on-site. As far as dining goes, the hotel offers several restaurants ranging from casual to upscale, and afternoon tea is available as well. Sitting on the banks of the River Maigue, this property is situated about 10 miles southwest of Limerick, Ireland. And since Adare Manor is part of The Leading Hotels of the World, Leaders Club members can enjoy additional amenities, including room upgrades and a welcome gift.

    The Merrion Hotel
    Dublin
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 3932 reviewsTripAdvisor (3932)
    Free WiFi

    What was once four separate Georgian-style townhouses in downtown Dublin is now the elegant Merrion Hotel, highly regarded for its first-class style and service. The 142-room property is home to the Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, the only restaurant in Ireland with two Michelin stars, as well as The Cellar Bar, which is housed in the original 18th-century wine vaults. There is also No. 23, an intimate cocktail bar that's popular with locals, and the full-service Tethra Spa, where the property's fitness center, steam room and infinity-edge swimming pool are housed. Guest rooms and suites are decorated in a white and pastel color palette inspired by Paul Henry's landscape paintings and feature furniture either from or reminiscent of 18th-century Dublin. Standard room amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, writing desks, fully stocked minibars and Italian Carrara marble bathrooms. Recent guests said the rooms were beautiful but recommended asking for one above the first floor for the best garden views. Others wished the bathrooms had more than one sink, though they did appreciate that the rooms themselves were updated and clean. And as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.

    The Westbury
    Dublin
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4591 reviewsTripAdvisor (4591)
    Free WiFi

    Located next to Dublin's Westbury Mall near the Trinity College campus, St. Stephen's Green and Grafton Street's pubs and eateries, The Westbury offers visitors convenient digs in the heart of the city. While the property's prime address was one of the highlights for recent guests, the Westbury also won over lodgers with its accommodations. All of the property's 205 guest rooms and suites feature neutral interiors with furnishings by George Smith and Blanc d'Ivoire, marble bathrooms with heated floors, complimentary Wi-Fi access, flat-screen TVs and Nespresso coffee machines. Suites offer additional living space, and the upgraded Presidential Suite includes perks like a private sauna and steam room and personal concierges for arranging extras like butler services and in-room fitness equipment. Many past guests praised the rooms for being comfortable and spacious, though some said daily rates were a bit high for the area and noted noise in accommodations on lower floors and in the front of the hotel. Service was also hit or miss. Some cited attentive and friendly employees during their stays, while others said receptionists and restaurant staff were slow. However, visitors give consistently high reviews for WILDE restaurant's breakfasts and The Sidecar's cocktails. Part of The Leading Hotels of the World, the property participates in the Leaders Club loyalty program.

    The Killarney Park Hotel
    Killarney
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1779 reviewsTripAdvisor (1779)
    Free WiFi

    Tucked within the quaint town of Killarney in southern Ireland, The Killarney Park Hotel gives guests prime access to Killarney's town center, where a few shops and restaurants, a movie theater and the city's train station reside. Less than 5 miles away, travelers will find local attractions like Ross Castle (a 15th-century castle) and Killarney National Park (Ireland's oldest national park and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve). The area's historical charm can also be felt at the hotel, where stone fireplaces and old-world furnishings are sprinkled throughout the property. But once you step inside your accommodations (which recent visitors said are spacious and comfortable), you'll discover modern interiors with details like wooden furnishings, chrome light fixtures and colorful walls and linens. Although exact decor varies by room, all spaces come with amenities like separate showers and bathtubs, satellite TVs and free Wi-Fi access. Outside of your digs, you'll find two main eateries, a bar (with a new outdoor terrace) and a spa with a fitness center, swimming pool and sauna. The highlight of this hotel, though, is its impeccable service. Former visitors were particularly impressed with the staff's sightseeing and dining suggestions and willingness to accommodate special requests. And as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this property participates in the Leaders Club rewards program.

    The ultra-sleek Marker Hotel wowed recent guests with its top-notch customer service, comfortable rooms and excellent spa facilities. Located east of central Dublin, The Marker Hotel is just blocks from River Liffey and about a mile from top city attractions, including the National Gallery of Ireland, Trinity College Dublin and St. Stephen’s Green.

The spa features an indoor infinity pool, a Jacuzzi, a gym, a eucalyptus-infused steam room and more. As for the rooms, guests found them to be incredibly clean and comfortable, outfitted with Nespresso coffee machines, 40-inch flat-screen Samsung TVs and bathrooms with designer toiletries and separate showers and baths.
