Competition

Win a free hotel night

 

Y GOEDEN EIRIN, an informal, stone-built guest house on the edge of the Snowdonia national park, is presided over by two retired academics, Eluned and John Rowlands who are former Cesar winners. They are engaging hosts, bilingual and seriously green, who make visitors welcome with sherry, fresh, fruit or home-made biscuits. Occupying renovated farm outbuildings surrounded by pastureland, this small guest house has views of mountains and sea: nature is the main attraction. The Aga-cooked dinner menus (guests are consulted beforehand) showcase 'enjoyable home cooking' using home-grown and local ingredients.

All you need do to win this prize of dinner, bed and breakfast for two at Y GOEDEN EIRIN is to send us a REVIEW of your favourite hotel or B&B in Great Britain or Ireland. We welcome reports on places that have never been in the Guide or have been dropped, as well as those that have a current entry.

Sheila Robinson from Cork is the winner of this month’s prize of dinner bed and breakfast for two at LORUM OLD RECTORY, Bagenalston, Co. Carlow, in the picturesque Barrow valley. It won a César award this year as Irish ‘guesthouse of the year'. Dinner is taken communally around a large mahogany table in the red dining room. Tea and home-baked scones, and after-dinner port, are enjoyed by a log fire in the drawing room. The house is furnished and decorated with obvious passion for detail.
