About the Author

Georgina Campbell, Hotel and Restaurant Critic, IrelandGeorgina Campbell is one of Ireland's leading food and hospitality writers. Her widely-read column in the Irish Independent Weekend Magazine has earned her many fans for its practical and down-to-earth approach - and, for the last eight years, the same honesty has applied to her comprehensive and critically acclaimed independently assessed guides to Ireland's best places to eat, drink and stay, 'Georgina Campbell's Ireland - the guide' and its growing number of companion volumes, including a unique guide to the best places to eat and drink along the inland waterways of Ireland, which is now published in association with Waterways Ireland.

Each year she and her husband, the sailing journalist and author W.M. Nixon – who writes the County Introductions for the Guide, and supplies many of the photographs – travel incognito to every county in Ireland to research the next year’s guides, usually accompanied by their Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Nellie, who is without doubt the most widely travelled dog in Ireland!

As there are only so many nights in which to try out the beds and service, and only so many meals one can eat when dining for Ireland’, a team of fellow food writers and other qualified hospitality professionals follow up with more anonymous visits, ultimately providing a comprehensive critical coverage for the entire country.

Georgina’s other writing includes regular contributions to Food & Wine magazine and, in addition to the guides, she has written a number of books on Irish food including "Good Food From Ireland" (now out of print), "Meals For All Seasons - The Best of Contemporary Irish Cooking" (limited availability), "The Best of Irish Breads & Baking" (recently reprinted), and “Irish Country House Cooking” (new edition just published). Georgina also publishes books for other authors under her Epicure Press title. The most recent of these was written by internationally acclaimed celebrity chef Kevin Dundon. This beautiful hardback book is called "Full on Irish - Contemporary Irish Cooking."

Educated at Queen’s University Belfast and Trinity College Dublin, Georgina is a founding member and former Chairman of the Irish Food Writers Guild, a member of Britain’s Guild of Food Writers and also a member of the International Slow Food Movement.
