Looking for some staycation inspiration? Look no further, as the best hotels in Ireland have been revealed in the Irish Hotel Awards 2021.

The best 5 star, 4 star and 3 star spots have just been announced, as well as the best hotel bars, restaurants and experiences.

The announcements will no doubt come as a boost to many businesses across the country, which are still reeling from a catastrophic year for tourism and hospitality, as Covid-19 kept hotels largely shuttered. As restrictions continue to ease, there are many staycationers looking to get bang for their buck after a year of few, if any, breaks away.

Belfast's Titanic Hotel nabbed no less than three awards, winning the gong for Ireland's Hotel Restaurant of the Year, the regional award of Ulster Hotel Restaurant of the Year and the Great Place to Stay Quality Award.

Speaking of the wins, Adrian McNally, General Manager, Titanic Hotel Belfast, said: "We appreciate the uniqueness of being able to dine in the Titanic Drawing Offices and to sleep in a room overlooking reminders of Belfast's shipbuilding heritage but to be recognised for our individuality with the Great Place to Stay Quality Award for the second year in a row underpins the everyday emphasis we place on quality, service and cleanliness- factors which were never more important than they are today."
