2008 Award Winners HOST OF THE YEAR 2008
John and Martina Sheedy run one of the west of Ireland’s best-loved small hotels - it offers some of the most luxurious accommodation and the best food in the area, yet it still has the warm ambience and friendly hands-on management which make a hotel special.
The sunny foyer has a comfortable seating area (and an open fire for chillier days), and the cosy bar is just the place to snuggle down with an after dinner drink - and Martina is always there, welcoming guests with quiet warmth and showing them to one of the spacious, stylishly designed bedrooms, telling them about things to do in the area, or directing them to the elegant, understated restaurant.
John’s cooking is sure to make dinner the highlight of a stay here and, under Martina’s direction, the service is gently paced, professional and unobtrusive. The same high standards apply at breakfast when an extensive menu is on offer: fine food and warm hospitality are constant qualities here - and the combination of John Sheedy’s fine cooking and Martina’s warmth and efficiency front of house make Sheedy’s a must-visit destination for discerning visitors to the area.
