Cashel Palace Hotel in Co Tipperary has been named on Condé Nast Traveler's Gold List 2024 of the best hotels and resorts in the world.

The Gold List, now in its 30th year, is an annual compilation of the best hotels and resorts in the world favored by the luxury travel publication's global editors.

The only hotel in Ireland to make the list, the newly-renovated Cashel Palace sits at the foot of the Rock of Cashel, one of Ireland's most iconic sites.

Built in 1728 for Church of Ireland Archbishop Theophilus Bolton, the elegant manor was designed by Sir Edward Lovett Pearce, a celebrated architect who also created the Parliament House in Dublin and Castletown House in Co Kildare.

The structure was transitioned to a luxury hotel in the 1960s, and over the years welcomed such luminaries as Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Diana, President Ronald Regan, and Jackie Kennedy.

In 2015, the property was purchased by The Magnier family, who made their fortune breeding thoroughbreds at Coolmore Stud.

After a multi-million dollar restoration, the luxurious hotel reopened last year.

Rooms at the Relais & Chateaux member hotel start at $378.

Gráinne McBride for Condé Nast Traveler writes: "This red-brick Palladian pile sits at the foot of the looming Rock of Cashel, one of Ireland’s most famous historic sites, with its Romanesque chapel, roofless cathedral and pencil-shaped round tower.

"The woodsmoke-scented entrance hall (log fires are lit daily) is bookended by black Kilkenny marble mantelpieces and wall-to-wall art that includes major names of Irish art history—Lavery, Jack B Yeats, Orpen—mostly copies of the owners’ private collection, with a few originals hanging strategically out of reach.

"There are 42 rooms and suites, outfitted in heavily textured fabrics, curtains zhuzhed up with pelmets and tassels. Best of all are the rooms with views over to the enigmatic Rock on the hilltop, which is atmospherically lit up at night.

"A slick spa is beautifully set at the edge of the restored gardens—look out for the centuries-old mulberry tree planted to mark Queen Anne’s coronation.

"Breakfast and afternoon tea are taken in the cream-walled room named after the monarch, where local products (jams, bacon and eggs) are the mainstay of the menu. The Bishop’s Buttery, the fine-dining offering, champions Tipperary produce in delicately plated dishes of Shepherd’s Store-cheese agnolotti and apples with caramel and Calvados."
