From Dingle to Donegal and onto Dubai, we have the lowdown on readers' favourite places to travel.

For the Irish Independent Reader Travel Awards 2017: The Results are here.

We have identified Ireland's favourite destination, the airline we prefer to travel with and the holiday hidden gem, as voted by you, our loyal readers.

In today's 'Weekend Magazine' and online on Independent.ie we have sourced the best breakfast in Ireland, the most beautiful beach and the most thrilling Irish adventure.

Food is proving a huge draw for Dingle with everything from local gins to ice-cream and the Kerry town has been selected as the Best Home Holiday Destination.

Readers listed everything from the Slea Head drive to the Blaskets to the Other Voices festival as reasons to select Dingle as a winner.

It'll come as no surprise that our intense love affair with Spain has ensured the Mediterranean country has secured its spot as Ireland's favourite destination.

Chapter One is an institution in itself and our readers have voted Martin Corbett, co-owner and host of the Dublin restaurant, as the face of Irish hospitality.

Our judges have deliberated and agreed on the awards which will mean much more than what the industry thinks.

These are the top spots of go-to getaways and tell-a-friend tips.

Also featured in the magazine are the nine winners of our amazing travel prizes - a tantalising selection of getaways both at home and overseas.
