From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

Ritz-Carlton's first foray into Ireland is stunningly set at the foot of the Wicklow Mountains near Dublin, in its own corner of the 1,000-acre Powerscourt Estate. The brand-new building contains a grand Georgian-style lobby, complete with fireplaces and sofas in the Sugar Loaf Lounge, where jazz bands and harp players set the mood. The 200 rooms are traditional but not stuffy, with feather-topped beds and bedside touch panels that control lighting and air-conditioning; many have floor-to-ceiling windows. The service is friendly and well intentioned, but some of the foreign-born staff lack a complete command of English. Although the breakfast buffet is excellent, with a wide selection of fresh berries, creamy yogurt, and locally smoked mackerel, the hotel's other dining choices are the rather unappetizing McGills, attached to the hotel, and a Gordon Ramsay restaurant that disappoints with its fussy menu and lack of atmosphere. When not strolling around the resort's ten acres, guests will want to explore the rest of the Powerscourt estate and the delightful nearby village of Enniskerry, or go on scenic mountain drives.

—2008 Hot List

When to go: Year-round.

Which room to book: A Mountain View room at the back of the hotel, to see Sugarloaf Mountain; higher floors give slightly better views.
