More than 240,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted responses rating their travel experiences across the globe to provide a full snapshot of the top places they enjoyed this year and can’t wait to return to next. The Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry.

Speaking today, Adare Manor’s General Manager Brendan O’Connor: “It is an absolute honor to be recognised as the number one Resort in the World by such a prestigious international media brand. The readers of Condé Nast Traveler are inspiring guests of ours who share a passion for excellence and authentic hospitality experiences, and we are humbled that they have chosen Adare Manor as their absolute favourite destination in the world. We’re very lucky to have such an incredibly historic and beautiful estate that provides a magical backdrop for every guest to create lasting memories, but furthermore, this award is a testament to all our team across every department that make the Adare Manor experience truly special.

Our vision of bringing a ‘Beyond Everything’ approach to everything we do is reinforced through this coveted accolade, as we continuously commit to evolving and enhancing the overall Adare Manor experience for every traveller, whether you’re visiting us from the local village or from around the world. 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 dedication to going above and beyond for all our guests and creating the most magical, memorable experience possible.”

Situated in the heart of picturesque Adare Village in Co. Limerick, Adare Manor is a Neo-Gothic masterpiece surrounded by medieval ruins, walled gardens, and winding woodland paths. Ideally located for visiting Ireland at the gateway to the South-West, along the Wild Atlantic Way, and just 25 minutes from Shannon International Airport. Since reopening its doors at the end of 2017 following a meticulous multi-year renovation, Adare Manor quickly propelled onto the global stage for providing an outstanding hospitality experience. The prized Resort has since received countless industry recognitions, and extensive accolades by Condé Nast Traveler who awarded Adare the coveted Hot List in 2018 as one of the best new hotels in the world, and the exclusive Gold List 2020 as the editors’ most loved properties.

In just two years after the property reopened, Adare Manor received one Michelin Star for its signature Oak Room restaurant, making it the first Michelin Star ever in the Co. Limerick region. In 2021, the property became the first in Ireland to open a 111SKIN Spa & Clinic coinciding with the anticipated launch of a multi-purpose, one-of-a-kind fitness and wellness centre called The Padel Club. In 2027, the Resort will be the host venue to the celebrated Ryder Cup on its championship Tom Fazio golf course which follows a breadth of on-property tournaments that have already taken place on the esteemed course.

Affiliated with Leading Hotels of the World, the 840-acre estate that makes up Adare Manor is comprised of 104 guestrooms and suites, a 350-peson capacity grand ballroom, Tom Fazio designed golf course, 111SKIN Spa & Clinic and a multitude of dining outlets including The Oak Room, The Carriage House, The Tack Room and more.

The 2022 Readers' Choice Awards are published on Condé Nast Traveler's website at and celebrated in the November issue.
