It’s not every day you stay in the best hotel in the world. Unplanned.
A few days before my arrival, Conde Nast announced this readers’ choice award, so … Serendipity!
With only 20 rooms, it will be harder to get a booking now. The hotel received 85 new bookings in within a few days of the announcement. It’s a gorgeous place, with a history that mirror’s Ireland’s. Go if you can.
My story was published in The Sydney Morning Herald and Melbourne Age Traveller on Saturday, November 5. Below is a PDF.
