Hotel of the Year
Ballynahinch Castle are delighted to be awarded the Georgina Campbell Hotel Of The Year Award 2012. The Georgina Campbell Awards are Ireland’s longest-running hospitality accolades and are completely independent, there is no charge to establishments for recommendation, the awards cannot be applied for but instead judged by Georgina and her team. It is this independence which has earned them special respect in the industry, and public trust.
Every year Georgina Campbell and her team of experienced assessors comb the country’s hotels, country houses, guesthouses, restaurants, pubs and cafés, seeking out the best consumer experiences for readers of The Georgina Campbell Guide and followers of the very successful website, www.ireland-guide.com.
Georgina said of Ballynahinch, Ballynahinch Castle is a wonderful place; the perfect Irish country hotel it is a cosy and characterful haven set against a ruggedly handsome landscape. It’s the real Ireland that we’re all hoping for when we go for a break - and it reminded me of the famous words of the great Hilary Rubinstein (founding editor of the Good Hotel Guide): ‘A good hotel is where the guest comes first’.
Speaking after the awards, Patrick O’Flaherty General Manager of Ballynahinch Castle said “It is very heartening to see the efforts of the team rewarded in this way, particularly in our 65th year as a hotel. It is a great endorsement of the superb hotel keeping that the long standing team have been providing over the past 65 years".
