The US travel bible has announced the winners of its Readers' Choice Travel Awards for 2021, ranking what it says are the world's best hotels, cities, countries, villas, trains, airlines, cruises and more.

La Mamounia in Marrakech, Morocco has been named as world's best hotel, while Singapore Airlines tops the list of the world’s best airlines.
"As restrictions ease, it is clear that our readers have spent much of the last year and a half dreaming about travel and planning future adventures," Divia Thani, global editorial director, reportedly said.
He reportedly added that the diversity of winners represents "a desire to get back out into the world and experience the best of what the travel industry has to offer."
The awards see Ireland ranked 14th best country to visit, sitting between Kenya (13) and Israel (15) on a list topped by Portugal, New Zealand, and Japan.
Condé Nast Traveller also named the Top 10 hotels in Ireland, as determined from the responses of over 800,000 readers, which are as follows:
- The Marker Hotel, Dublin
- Lough Eske Castle, Co. Donegal
- Ballyfin, Co. Laois
- Conrad Dublin
- Park Hotel Kenmare, Co. Kerry
- The Morrison Hotel, Dublin
- Kilkea Castle, Co. Kildare
- The Merrion, Dublin
- The Westbury, Dublin
- Ballynahinch Castle Hotel, Co. Galway
Largely voted on by US-based readers, Condé Nast's categories and winners tend to reflect the ways its voters travel and the places they visit.
Readers vote on a list of candidates in various categories, which must receive a minimum number of responses and overall rating to be eligible.
Galway ranked ninth on a best cities list topped by Istanbul, Porto and San Sebastián, while Ashford Castle was named seventh best resort in Europe, on a list headed up by Cheval Blanc in Courchevel, France.
With restrictions lifting and the industry unlocking, most people nominating via Condé Nast's website reportedly said that "they wanted to take more trips now than ever before, and to seek out new destinations", the magazine reportedly said.
