POWERSCOURT HOTEL IN Wicklow was named the best hotel in Ireland by the AA last night.

And thanks to their Instagram account, we can have a proper gawk around the place and find out what it’s really like to stay in:

The rooms look grand anyway

And you’d probably get some relaxation on the balcony

The spa comes in two settings: dark and relaxing

And bright and spectacular

The gardens speak for themselves

And have some characters knocking around them, both fake and real

Just imagine winter there. *cosy*

And you’ll have a delightful view of the Sugarloaf the whole time
