The Westbury Has Been Voted The Best Hotel In Ireland

The popular Dublin hotel receives the accolade for a second year.


The Westbury, Dublin has been voted ‘Best Hotel in Ireland’ in the Condé Nast Traveler 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards. It marks the second year the hotel has received the accolade.

Now in its 32nd year, the Readers’ Choice Awards  awards are the longest-running in the travel industry and are often referred to as “the best of the best of travel.” This year’s awards saw more than 600,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers around the world voting for their favourite travel destinations across the globe. Almost 10,000 hotels, resorts, and destination spas were rated, with barely 15 percent making the cut.

The Westbury comes in at number 47 on the top 50 list (Portlaoise’s Ballyfin Demesne sits at number 48) with the hotels bar, The Sidecar and restaurant Wilde coming in for particular praise: 

“From the second you walk into The Westbury and up the grand, bifurcated staircase, it’s hard not to be impressed. Settle into one of The Gallery's plush armchairs for afternoon tea, grab a seat in The Sidecar for a perfect martini, or book a table at WILDE, an impeccable restaurant with a luxurious 1930s feel, for a full meal. Upstairs, the rooms and suites are light-filled and tranquil, with large bathtubs and Irish art. You’ll feel a strong, welcoming vibe at every turn—the staff here is endearingly helpful.”

The SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, with decor designed by Philippe Starck, topped the list in this year's awards. The full results can be found here and in the November issue of Conde Naste Traveler print editions.
