Georgina Campbell’s Guide – Country House of the year 2011
Marlfield House is thrilled to be awarded the title of “Country House of the Year 2011″ by the renowned Georgina Campbell’s Ireland guide.
Georgina Campbell Guides is a publishing company specializing in Irish food and hospitality that was established in 1997 by Georgina Campbell, the well-known food & travel writer. The Irish company’s flagship product is Georgina Campbell’s Ireland – the Guide (All The Best Places to Eat, Drink & Stay).
In awarding the title of “Country House of the Year” to Marlfield House, the guide states -
“Marlfield House is a beautiful, small country house hotel that has never been in any doubt about its position in the luxury niche, with an emphasis on impeccable service, exquisite traditional style, superlative comfort and delicious food – much of it coming from their own immaculately maintained kitchen gardens.”
“Now run by Margaret and Laura Bowe, the daughters of the original owners (who have retired nearby), this jewel of a country house has a less formal atmosphere of late, but without so much as a hint of any slippage in standards – and their vigorous marketing underlines its position as a cultured destination, associated with events such as the Wexford Opera Festival and in-house offerings like their very special lunchtime recitals, held on occasional Sundays throughout the year.”
