Memories last longer than staycations.
And if you’re looking for an autumn getaway you’ll remember for years to come, one Cork hotel has just scooped an award for creating memorable experiences for their guests.
Dunmore House in Ardfield, Clonakilty has won this year’s Memorable Experience award at the Georgina Campbell Awards 2023.
Georgina Campbell Guide awards are compiled based on anonymous visits, and this year focused particularly on “genuine hospitality, consistency, innovation, and good value”.
Writing about Dunmore House and its Michelin-recommended Adrift restaurant, Ms Campbell said “The wonderful location is the biggest USP of course, but there’s plenty else to keep you here.
“Everything is always immaculate yet homely and the dining experience is outstanding in a lovely low-key way.
“Delicious home produce, just in from the clifftop gardens (really worth visiting) is cooked with finesse but allowed to be itself – a simple pleasure on a recent visit was a gorgeous side, a bowl of boiled potatoes which, we all agreed, were ‘a treat just like sweets’.
“And why are potatoes like this so rare now? All round, a highlight of our year. And it’s pet friendly too.”
