Win a Walking Break for Two at Hanora's Cottage

 Hanora’s Cottage

With freedom on our minds like never before, it’s hard to imagine anything more enjoyable than a walking break in lovely rural Ireland. So what could be better than a stay at the Wall family’s charming Nire Valley guesthouse, Hanora’s Cottage, in beautiful West Waterford?

Situated in the Comeragh Mountains, between Clonmel and Dungarvan, Hanora’s is known as “the walking centre of the Nire Valley” - and with good reason, as there’s a whole range of wonderful hill walks starting from the front doorstep.

And, whether or not you’re a walker, it is a very special place - and, especially for weary city folk in need of clear country air, it makes a wonderfully away-from-it-all adult-only destination where genuine hospitality is matched by thoughtfully comfortable accommodation and terrific food.

Mary Wall and her late husband Seamus came here in 1967, to live beside the church in the riverside cottage that was built by Seamus’s great grandparents - and today, many extensions later, Mary still welcomes guests to Hanora’s with her son Eoin and his wife Judith, who are both Euro-Toques chefs and keen supporters of small local food producers.

They love introducing guests to local foods on their evening menus in the restaurant - and also (amongst an astonishing range of foods from Ireland and abroad), at the legendary Hanora’s breakfast which sets everyone up for the outdoor activities - especially walking, but also pony trekking, birdwatching, fishing and painting - that draw people to this wonderfully unspoilt place. Walks are colour coded and maps can also be provided, along with packed lunches and walking sticks - and, of course, there will be a delicious dinner to return to as well. Magic.

The lucky winner of this free competition will have a short break for two people sharing (subject to availability), to include:
•   Welcome refreshments on arrival
•   2 nights luxurious accommodation
•   Full Irish breakfast each morning
•   Dinner on the evening of your choice
•   Packed lunch each day
