Winners of the Georgina Campbell Awards for 2013

Since its inception in 1997, the editorial position at Georgina Campbell Guides has always been fiercely proud of it’s independent and no payment is received for their recommendations. They insist that “independence is at the core of our philosophy and we have always selected establishments for recommendation on merit alone.”

Their annual assessment process is based on the principle of the ‘mystery shopper’, so their team make anonymous visits to restaurants, hotels, Bed & Breakfasts, cafes and other hospitality-providers and report back “without fear or favour”. Their annual Awards are therefore coveted by those who receive them.
The Restaurant Of The Year went to The Greenhouse, Dublin 2, Co Dublin

Chef Of The Year went to Chef Ian Orr, at Browns Restaurant, Derry City, Co Derry.
