The World Travel Awards has announced the leading Irish hotels with the five-star Powerscourt Hotel Resort & Spa crowned the country's best.

"We are exceptionally pleased and indeed proud to be voted Ireland’s Leading Hotel 2016 at the prestigious awards," said Powerscourt Hotel general manager Ian Wynne.

Other winners included the five-star Dromoland Castle as Ireland's Leading Boutique Hotel,beating the previous year's winner The G Hotel & Spa, and The Shelbourne Hotel, winning the title of Leading Business Hotel, which had been held by the Hilton Dublin for the past three years. The Westbury Hotel's Presidential Suite was named the Leading Hotel suite, the Conrad Dublin won Ireland's Leading Luxury Hotel for the second year running, and Cork's Inchydoney Island Lodge was crowned the Leading Spa Resort.

The big winners at the ceremony were Ciragan Palace Kempinski Istanbul for Leading Hotel in Europe and the Titanic Belfast as 'Europe's Leading Tourist Attraction', which will compete at the Grand Final Gala Ceremony in December.
