Brooklodge highly commended at prestigious national awards
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’.
