World Travel Awards 202

This is Adare Manors third year winning this award

Adare Manor, one of Ireland’s leading five-star castle resorts, is delighted to confirm that – for the third consecutive year – the resort has been named ‘Ireland’s Leading Hotel’ in the globally renowned World Travel Awards 2020 which revealed its European winners.  The news comes on the occasion of the third anniversary of Adare Manor’s re-opening following the extensive restoration of this historic and stunning castle estate in 2017.


World Travel Awards is a global initiative to recognize and reward excellence in travel and tourism.  The results follow a year-long search for the world’s top travel, tourism and hospitality brands with votes cast by travel industry professionals and the public.  Despite the challenges faced over the course of 2020, this year’s World Travel Awards nomination programme has reported record visitor traffic and engagement from public voters.  

Adare Manor has also recently added three further awards to its collection at the 2020 World Golf Awards announced on Friday, 30th October 2020.  Hosts to the Ryder Cup in 2027, Adare Manor’s The Carriage House has won ‘World’s Best Golf Clubhouse’ in the 2020 World Golf Awards along with ‘Ireland’s Best Hotel’ and, for the second year running, ‘Ireland’s Best Golf Course’ for its championship parkland golf course.

Welcoming receipt of this latest prestigious global award, CEO of Adare Manor Mr. Colm Hannon said, “Yesterday, 2nd November, marked the third anniversary of the re-opening of Adare Manor following the extensive restoration project of 2017.  We are truly honoured to have been voted ‘Ireland’s Leading Hotel’ by the industry professionals and the all important public vote at the prestigious 2020 World Travel Awards.  This category is hugely competitive due to the many exceptional world-class hotels and resorts we have here in Ireland.  It is with great pride that we accept this recognition on behalf of our dedicated team who strive to make quality and elegance the hallmark of every stay at the historic Adare Manor resort. The support we receive locally, nationally and internationally from our guests is hugely encouraging, and for that we are very grateful, particularly during these challenging times.”


Adare Manor reopened in November 2017 following an extensive restoration, refurbishment and expansion programme over a 21-month period.  The resort has been meticulously restored to its former splendour, and with the addition of the very best of newly designed features, ensures that Adare Manor can be experienced and enjoyed now for generations to come. 

Despite the challenges and turbulence to the golf tourism and hospitality industry, votes were cast by hundreds of thousands of golf consumers from a record 129 countries.
