Lough Eske Castle, a Solis Hotel & Spa

Lough Eske Castle, a Solis Hotel & Spa Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The five-pearl Lough Eske Castle is a beautiful and luxurious hotel that sits on the shores of its namesake lake, surrounded by sprawling grounds and gardens. A secluded countryside retreat (though a short drive to Donegal), the property includes a renowned spa housed in the lovely Victorian Glass House where guests can indulge in a bout of pampering and use the sauna, steam room, fitness center, or infinity pool with views of the gardens. The hotel's restaurant uses fresh, locally sourced ingredients, including seafood from nearby Killybegs. Tastefully decorated rooms are large, as are the luxurious bathrooms with walk-in showers and soaking tubs, but not air-conditioned. The nearby Harvey’s Point Hotel is also on the lake and has slightly lower rates, but is not as luxurious as Lough Eske Castle, and does not have spa or pool.
The Merrion Hotel

The Merrion Hotel Rating: 5.0 Pearls

The Merrion is Dublin's most exclusive luxury hotel, and has a convenient location across from the Government buildings in four 18th-century townhouses. It has fewer rooms than the nearby Shelbourne and feels more intimate and private, though its list of features is still extensive: The hotel has a full-service spa, lovely Roman-style indoor pool, and well-equipped fitness center. The impressive restaurant offering includes Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, the only restaurant in Ireland to receive two Michelin stars, as well as the casual and atmospheric Cellar Bar, housed in the original 18th century wine vaults. It's true that some rooms have unremarkable views of other buildings, the gym is a bit small, and not all rooms have iPod docks, but most will find little fault with this five-pearl gem.
Ashford Castle

Ashford Castle Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Ashford Castle embodies the fantasy of the Irish castle hotel, featuring a massive historic stone facade, complete with towers and turrets; gorgeous, manicured grounds; a stunning setting on a huge lake; and common spaces that are truly grand, with rich wood paneling, chandeliers, and antique furniture. After such magnificence, the rooms can be a bit of a letdown. They still retain elements of their original elegance, but some have frumpy style and need renovations. George V Dining Room offers excellent, formal fine dining (jackets are required in the evening), and drinks and tea can be enjoyed in the graceful drawing room with lake views. The wide range of estate activities includes falconry lessons, boat tours on the lake, golf on the 9-hole course, clay shooting, and archery.
Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Dublin

Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Dublin Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The Radisson Blu Royal is a 150-room, contemporary luxury property on the south side of the River Liffey. The modern, quiet rooms feature up-to-date amenities such as flat-screen TVs, stocked minibars, and free Wi-Fi; business rooms have Nespresso coffeemakers. Bathrooms are sleek, and have separate soaking tubs and walk-in showers. Suites offer extra space to lounge, and some come with balconies. Hotel amenities include on-site parking (for a fee), two restaurants, a cocktail lounge, a bar, and a business center. While the hotel doesn't have a fitness center, guests do have free access to a local gym a short walk away.
Sheen Falls Lodge

Sheen Falls Lodge Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Sheen Falls Lodge is arguably the top hotel in County Kerry. The 300-acre estate belonged to the Marquess of Landsowne in the 18th century, and the hotel -- opened in 1991 -- feels like a country manor house. It has a stunning setting on both Kenmare Bay and Sheen River, which has, as the name suggests, gentle tumbling waterfalls. The 66 rooms have classic country decor -- crown molding, cheerful prints (plaids and florals among them, in moderation), and soft yellow walls; all but one have water views. Estate activities range from clay pigeon shooting to fishing to tennis, and more traditional luxury hotel features include a lovely indoor pool, spa, and small fitness center. Formal fine dining is offered at La Cascade restaurant, while (slightly) less expensive dishes are served at the classy Restaurant Lounge. The sommelier hosts daily tastings in the wine cellar.
Cliff House Hotel

Cliff House Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

Billed as the only five-star seaside hotel in Ireland, the 39-room Cliff House "hangs from the cliff's face," offering stunning views of Ardmore Bay. It draws travelers looking to escape, unwind, and take in the spectacular views, and foodies eager to try the one Michelin-starred hotel restaurant in all of Ireland. Rooms are large, comfortable, and modern, with a color palette inspired by the natural surroundings. All have sea views, and come with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Large, luxurious bathrooms have walk-in rainfall showers and egg-shaped soaking tubs. The indoor infinity pool has a glass wall offering beautiful views over the bay, and there’s a full-service spa with sauna, steam room, a relaxation terrace with outdoor soaking tubs, and a natural rock pool. The quaint fishing village of Ardmore, with its sandy beaches and 12th-century church ruins, is less than a five-minute drive, and Cork is an hour's drive. Many charming towns and villages are within a short drive of the hotel.
Lyrath Estate Hotel, Spa & Convention Centre

Lyrath Estate Hotel, Spa & Convention Centre Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The Lyrath Estate Hotel's blend of 17th- and 21st-century design is impressive, as are the large manicured gardens and lush parkland surrounding the property. The hotel has all the makings of a country getaway, with an extensive list of amenities for children and adults. Rooms are spacious and nicely finished, though old-style TVs should be replaced. The restaurants are on the pricey side, but there are plenty of other options in Kilkenny, just a mile away. All in all, the hotel is a decent luxury option that delivers on facilities. Those looking to be closer to the hustle and bustle of the city center should check out the slightly less posh Newpark Hotel.
Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort

Adare Manor Hotel & Golf Resort Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The 62-room Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort is a luxurious five-pearl property housed in a gorgeous castle-style manor house set on a sprawling estate on the banks of the River Maigue. The surrounding parkland makes for a peaceful countryside retreat, where guests can partake in a wide range of outdoor activities, including falconry, archery, fishing, and golf on the championship golf course. They can also pamper themselves with treatments at the Lavender Cottage spa. Interior spaces are full of antique pieces and decorative details -- original stone fireplaces and stained-glass windows -- that evoke another era, and extend to the rooms and suites. The Adare has two atmospheric restaurants, and a late-night cellar bar offers live music. Self-catering villas and town houses are also available, but villa guests cannot use the hotel’s indoor pool, steam room, and fitness center.
Dylan Hotel

Dylan Hotel Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The Dylan Hotel is a stylish 44-room boutique with a quiet and safe location in Dublin 4, an upscale neighborhood a short walk from the city center. Each room has been individually styled with a mix of whimsical decor -- artistic headboards, intricate mirrors, and statement chairs -- and classic pieces. Amenities are fantastic for such a small property. In the room, there are flat-screen TVs, iPod docks (with iPods loaded with historical Dublin walking tours), stocked minibars, and bathrooms with underfloor heating. Some bathrooms also have big, luxurious soaking tubs with small flat-screen TVs. Amenities in the hotel include a fitness room, cozy bar, heated outdoor terrace, solid restaurant, and 24-hour room service. In addition to its character and sleek style, the Dylan is known for excellent service.
The Fitzwilliam Hotel Dublin

The Fitzwilliam Hotel Dublin Rating: 4.5 Pearls

The Fitzwilliam Hotel is a beautiful design hotel with a fantastic location overlooking St. Stephen's Green. A bold use of color, modern furniture, and eclectic accents combine in fun rooms with huge bathrooms. Many rooms have soaking tubs and separate walk-in showers; all have minibars, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi. In addition to a full gym and spa, the Fitzwilliam also has three distinct restaurants serving Irish, Mediterranean, and French cuisine (Thornton's has one Michelin star). The hotel also offers 24-hour room service. With small touches like fluffy duvets and nightly chocolates, this hotel -- with its location at the heart of Dublin -- is one of the best picks in town.
