The TripAdvisor 2017 Travellers’ Choice top hotel votes have been counted and the results are in. The “Top 10 Irish hotels” list features some Ireland Chauffeur Travel favorites and is a great reminder of the quality hotels on offer around the country – from Donegal to Mayo, Dublin, Kerry, Cork, Laois and, well, back to Donegal! Harvey’s Point, a four-star hotel set among the Bluestack Mountains on the shores of Lough Eske in Donegal, grabs top spot on the Top Irish Hotels List as well as the “Best service” category.

The results cap an incredible start to 2017 for Donegal, which was ranked Number 1 on the “Cool List for 2017” by National Geographic Traveller UK. Donegal was also voted as “Ireland’s Hidden Gem” in the Irish Independent Reader Travel Awards.

Ireland Chauffeur Travel favorites feature in the “Top Luxury Hotels in Ireland” list, with the Killarney Park Hotel taking top spot. Ballyfin Demense – which was voted Best Hotel in the World by Condé Naste Readers – took second place, ahead of Dublin’s Merrion Hotel and Hayfield Manor in Cork.
