Oughterard's Currarevagh House has won an award for its Irish breakfast.
Food writer Georgina Campbell described Currarevagh House as "special", and a "real country house, doing things in season" after winning the Welcome Standard Category at the Irish Breakfast Awards 2018
The second annual Georgina Campbell Irish Breakfast Awards, in association with Fáilte Ireland, are a showcase of the Irish breakfast at its best, and the role it plays in creating some of Ireland’s most memorable food and hospitality experiences.
Speaking about Currarevagh House, Georgina Campbell said: "They don’t have a breakfast menu, but there’s always something interesting on offer - homemade kombucha, sourdough breads and natural yogurt are current favourites in the Currarevagh kitchen and there’s kedgeree most mornings too."
Paul Keeley, director of commercial development at Fáilte Ireland said breakfast is becoming an important part of the visitor experience in Ireland.
"We are delighted to partner with Georgina Campbell’s Irish Breakfast Awards to promote the authentic taste of Ireland that a quality Irish breakfast can provide to visitors. Georgina Campbell’s Ireland independent hospitality guides, independent hospitality and travel website and Ireland’s longest-running food and hospitality awards are highly respected by the Irish hospitality, food and tourism industry. Georgina Campbell’s Ireland Awards schemes are completely independent. It is this independence which has earned them special respect in the industry, and public trust."
Currarevagh House is a Victorian country manor situated on the shores of Lough Corrib in 150 acres of private woodland.
Galway city's NOX Hotel received a highly commended at the awards.
