The Ultimate Hospitality Guide to Ireland in 2018

The Georgina Campbell Guides Awards took place in Dublin this week and they've announced their winners for best hotels, restaurants and hideaways.

Since 1997, Georgina and her husband W.M. Nixon have led their team of hospitality gurus across Ireland to survey each county's hospitable offerings. 

The annual Georgina Campbell Guides Awards are respected within the food and tourism community as there is no entry fee and each award is selected based on the company's own findings as well as customer questionnaires.

The 2018 awards took place at Bord Bia's Thinking House in Dublin revealing the country's best hotels, restaurants and hideaways.
