The Twelve Hotel in Barna, Galway is among the winners in the AA Hotel of the Year awards.
The overall award of AA Hotel of the Year 2018 goes to Ballyfin Demesne in Co Laois.
The AA Guest Accomodation of the year award was won by Aldridge Lodge at Duncannon in Co Wexford.
And the Twelve Hotel in Barna won the AA Courtesy & Care Award for excellence in customer care.
Judges said this is a reflection of the staff, rather than the buildings and grounds, and reflects an establishment in which an AA inspector would choose to stay themselves, or bring their own families.
