THE Brook­Lodge and Ma­cred­din Vil­lage has been short­listed for a pres­ti­gious award.

The Aughrim ho­tel is one of the 80 on the short­list for the 2020 Ge­orgina Camp­bell Ir­ish Food and Hos­pi­tal­ity Award in as­so­ci­a­tion with AIB. The 26 cat­e­gories this year in­clude Ho­tel of the Year, Chef of the Year, Hos­pi­tal­ity Hero, Pet Friendly Des­ti­na­tion of the Year, Street Food of the Year and Taste the Is­land In­no­va­tion Award, which is spon­sored by Fáilte Ire­land.

Now in their 21st year, the awards recog­nise the achieve­ments of those in the tourism and hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try, cel­e­brat­ing the peo­ple who work the hard­est to pre­serve and de­velop Ire­land’s rep­u­ta­tion as a food des­ti­na­tion.

Ge­orgina Camp­bell said that this year’s awards have ‘a par­tic­u­lar fo­cus on cel­e­brat­ing Ire­land’s won­der­ful in­dus­try pioneers’.

‘This means recog­nis­ing and award­ing those who have laid the foun­da­tions that have made Ire­land’s food tourism and hos­pi­tal­ity jour­ney such a fan­tas­tic suc­cess story and the new pioneers, of­ten next gen­er­a­tion fam­ily mem­bers, who are safe­guard­ing its fu­ture,’ she said.

The awards will take place at the In­ter­Con­ti­nen­tal Ho­tel in Dublin on Sunday, Septem­ber 15, with spe­cial guest chef Richard Cor­ri­gan tak­ing part in a lively ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion.
