A HOTEL located in Newmarket-on-Fergus is the best in the world for sleep.
At the Traveller’s Choice Hotel Awards, the top spot in the new ‘Hotels for Sleep Category’ was won by Dromoland Castle. The recognition means it is viewed as a hotel where a decent night’s kip is as good as guaranteed.
Managing Director at Dromoland Castle, Mark Nolan was very pleased with the win. “At Dromoland Castle, we believe that a good night’s sleep is the cornerstone of a memorable and rejuvenating hotel experience.
“This accolade is a testament to our unwavering commitment to providing unparalleled comfort, reinforces our position as a global leader in luxury hospitality and motivates us to continue raising the bar for excellence in guest satisfaction. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to TripAdvisor and, most importantly, to our valued guests whose trust and support have made this achievement possible,” he added.
Dromoland Castle which has been welcoming guests since the 16th century is the ancestral home of the O’Briens of Dromoland, whose lineage dates back 1,000 years to Brian Boru, one of the last High Kings of Ireland.
Bought by US businessman Bernard P. McDonough in 1962, Dromoland has been converted for use as a luxury hotel since then. The five star hotel has a golf course on its five hundred acre estate.
