Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

A Wick­low ho­tel has been recog­nised at a pres­ti­gious na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.

Brook­lodge and Ma­cred­din Vil­lage was awarded highly com­mended in the Out­stand­ing Guest Ex­pe­ri­ence 2020 cat­e­gory at the Ge­orgina Camp­bell Ir­ish Food and Hos­pi­tal­ity Awards. The awards, in as­so­ci­a­tion with AIB, hon­our the food and hos­pi­tal­ity fore­run­ners in Ire­land.

Ge­orgina Camp­bell paid trib­ute to all those who ex­celled in this year’s com­pe­ti­tion at the awards cer­e­mony.

‘I have been think­ing a lot about the legacy of the won­der­ful Myr­tle Allen – to whom the in­dus­try owes an enor­mous debt of grat­i­tude and who we re­mem­ber fondly at to­day’s event – and those of her gen­er­a­tion who have laid down the un­shak­able foun­da­tions of qual­ity. Many of these great peo­ple are still ac­tive and work­ing along­side their chil­dren and of­ten their grand­chil­dren, and they are the pi­o­neers of the gen­uine hos­pi­tal­ity, sus­tain­able food sourc­ing and in­no­va­tion that Ire­land is gain­ing a rep­u­ta­tion for to­day,’ said Ge­orgina Camp­bell, one of Ire­land’s best-known food writ­ers.

‘Equally we can marvel at the wave of tal­ented, skilled and mo­ti­vated young peo­ple who are lay­ing down new foun­da­tions and safe­guard­ing the fu­ture for the gen­er­a­tions to come’.

The rig­or­ous pro­gramme of anony­mous as­sess­ment vis­its is a year-round process. Win­ners are nom­i­nated solely by an in­de­pen­dent as­sess­ment team.

Marl­field House Ho­tel in Co Wex­ford was named Ho­tel of the Year while Kil­dare’s Aim­sir was awarded the ti­tle of res­tau­rant of the year.
