Today we reveal the winners of our Reader Travel Awards 2020. After thousands of reader nominations, the results below are crammed with real-life travel intelligence. We Irish are notorious for saving our “real” feedback for until we’ve left the building, but here are the people and places you trust with your dreams, money and downtime. Words like “value”, “sustainability” and “authenticity” surface again and again. As does 'craic'... hundreds of times. Dive in. Have fun. And congratulations to all!
