Win a break for 2 in Hanora's Cottage
This month you have the opportunity to win a short break for two people in Hanora's Cottage, a very special place - equally wonderful for foot-weary walkers, or desk-weary city folk in Ballymacarbry in the Nire Valley, West Waterford.
Although the Wall family’s gloriously remote country guesthouse is now a very substantial building, the spirit of the ancestral home around which Hanora’s is built remains a strong presence and the genuine hospitality of the Wall family is matched by the luxurious accommodation and good food they provide.
Large, comfortably furnished seating areas overlooking the garden and countryside have an open fire, sofas and big armchairs, giving plenty of opportunity to relax, and the 10 spacious thoughtfully furnished bedrooms all have jacuzzi baths (one especially romantic room is perfect for honeymooners); there’s also a spa tub in a conservatory overlooking the garden, with views of the mountains.
Overnight guests begin the day with Hanora’s legendary breakfast buffet, which was a former National Winner of our Irish Breakfast Awards; it takes some time to get the measure of this feast, so make sure you get up in time to make the most of it.
This is truly a gargantuan feast, designed to see you many miles along the hills before you stop for a little packed lunch (prepared that morning), and ultimately return for dinner...
One of the best things about Hanora’s is that people travel from far and wide to dine in their 40 seater restaurant, which adds to the atmosphere.
It is pleasant for evening guests to mingle with residents at the fireside, have an aperitif and ponder on Eoin and Judith Wall’s imaginative, well-balanced menus - then, difficult choices made, you move through to the restaurant, which overlooks a secluded garden and riverside woodland.The lucky winner of this free competition will have a short break for two people (subject to availability), to include:
• 2 nights accommodation
• full Irish breakfast on both mornings
• dinner for two people on one night
