Waterford Castle Hotel & Golf Resort has been named as one of the top three hotels of Europe in 2016 by Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. The Ireland hotel also occupied the seventh position among the 50 best Hotels in the world.
Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry.
“We are thrilled with this recognition and wish to thank our guests and our staff who are the reason we received this award,” said Helen Courtney, Waterford Castle General Manager.
Among Europe’s Top 10 Hotels Waterford Castle Hotel & Golf Resort ranked 3rd while the first spot went to Ballyfin Demesne and The Lodge at Ashford Castle was placed 9th.
“Given the intense competition from other luxury properties around the globe, it’s really a wonderful achievement. This accolade by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine also helps to raise the profile of the island of Ireland, Ireland in general, and gives Tourism Ireland a wonderful hook to showcase our superb luxury tourism product, including our castles, luxury resorts and boutique hotels, our rich culture and heritage and, of course, our world-class golf. Congratulations to Ballyfin Demesne, Waterford Castle, and The Lodge at Ashford Castle on this truly well-deserved recognition,” said Tourism Ireland CEO, Niall Gibbons.
