The Irish National Stud Wins a Trip Advisor Travelers’ Choice Award

The Irish National Stud and Gardens has just received a huge global award that recognises the Co Kildare tourism attraction as being in the top 10% of things to do worldwide. The prestigious Travellers Choice world award given by Tripadvisor recognises travellers’ favourite attractions globally which is based on tens of thousands of reviews and ratings collected over 12 months thus yielding the famous tourism attraction a spot at the top.

The Travelers’ Choice awards honour travellers’ favourite destinations, hotels, restaurants, things to do, and beyond, based on the reviews and opinions collected from travelers and diners around the world on Tripadvisor over a 12-month period. Travellers’ Choice recognises businesses that earn consistently great reviews. Travelers’ Choice award-winners are among the top 10% of listings on Tripadvisor. Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice honours select accommodations, attractions and restaurants that consistently demonstrate a commitment to hospitality excellence.

CEO Cathal Beale said “We are honoured to be recognised with this amazing world accolade for our attraction here in the heart of Ireland’s thoroughbred country. When visitors arrive here, they escape to a world of woodlands, tranquil gardens and thoroughbred horses but most importantly, our world class guides help them to unravel a great Irish story and leave with a lasting memory.”

The heightened popularity can be attributed to recent investments onsite such as the Irish Racehorse Experience, an interactive experience offering firsthand insights into breeding and owning a racehorse as well as having an exhilarating real-time virtual race on horseback. There were ongoing improvements to the family facilities, playground, picnic areas, walking trails and especially the two gardens which include the famous Japanese Gardens and the more natural St Fiachra’s Garden where our team of gardeners have focused on native Irish plants, sustainability and pollination amidst lakes and hidden stone beehive huts.

We’d like to thank everyone who has visited us and contributed in making us part of the top 10% of things to do worldwide!
