Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort Takes Top Honors
at the annual World Travel Awards

"Oscars of the travel industry"

Adare Village, (Co. Limerick) … October 2012 …  For the third consecutive year, Adare Manor, located near Limerick and Shannon International Airport, has received top regional placement in the annual World Travel Awards.  Adare Manor was once again named Ireland’s Leading Hotel.  The exquisite five-star, castle-like property is set in an historic, 19th century manor house surrounded by meticulously manicured lawns, exquisite walled and formal gardens, and acres of parklands.  Just beyond Adare Manor’s gates is Adare Village, originally part of the estate and today considered one of Ireland’s most charming and photogenic villages with its storied thatched roof houses.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized for the third year by the World Travel Awards,” said Anita Higgins, general manager of Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort.  “It is a tremendous privilege to serve our guests and provide them with the best hospitality experience possible, and to have this recognized in this way by our customers and our industry colleagues is especially meaningful.”
The Castle at Adare Manor is extraordinary.  A unique “Calendar House,” it has 365 stained glass windows, 52 chimneys, 7 pillars in the lobby for each day of the week and 4 towers for each season.  Built for the second Earl of Dunraven in the early 1800s, the family staterooms are now gorgeous guest suites.  Their exquisitely-carved oak dining room seats hotel guests for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the magnificent Minstrel’s Gallery - a 132 foot long, 26-½ foot high expanse inspired by the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles - hosts spectacular social and corporate gatherings.  The property became Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort in the late 1980s.
The World Travel Awards, described by The Wall Street Journal as the “Oscars of travel and tourism,” were established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the travel and tourism industry. Today, the WTA brand is recognized globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire.
The voting for the World Travel Awards is online and a year-long communications campaign encourages global participation.  The votes come from qualified executives working within travel and tourism, as well as consumer travellers.  Last year, nearly 800,000 individual votes were cast by travel professionals and consumers in 171 countries.  Awards are presented across three tiers: country, regional and ultimately world awards. 
Each year WTA covers the globe with a series of regional gala events to recognize and celebrate individual and collective successes within each key geographical region.  All regional winners then compete head to head in a final round of voting to decide who will triumph in WTA’s world awards announced in December.  In 2013, WTA will celebrate its historic 20th anniversary year.
