HIDEAWAY OF THE YEAR 2013
Moy House, Lahinch, Co Clare
Representatives of the very best in Irish hospitality gathered at Bord Bia in Dublin, for the announcement of the 2013 Georgina Campbell Awards, associated with the respected Georgina Campbell’s Ireland independent hospitality guides, and Ireland’s most popular independent hospitality and travel website www.ireland-guide.com. These are Ireland’s longest-running hospitality awards, and highly respected by the industry.“Everyone loves the idea of a hideaway, and this is one of our most popular awards. Whether it’s the establishments itself which offers that sense of privacy and seclusion, or its location, there is something very appealing about a place that you can disappear to and escape everyday pressures.
The west coast has timeless appeal as a place to get away from it all, and this gorgeous country house overlooking Lahinch Bay ticks all the right boxes as a hideaway…. warm and welcoming, with an open fire and fresh flowers in the hall, a spiral staircase and a deliciously decadent drawing room to relax and take in the view, it’s as atmospheric as get out and downright luxurious to boot. Most of the stylishly, sumptuously appointed bedrooms have sea views and the main rooms are wonderfully spacious, some with canopy or four-poster beds; one extra-luxurious suite even has a private conservatory overlooking the Atlantic - the ultimate hideaway! All this and good food too, it’s nothing short of an occasion of sin.”
The award was proudly accepted by Brid O'Meara General Manager of Moy House. (photo credits Paul Sherwood)
