César Award for Mustard Seed

The Mustard Seed of Ballingarry, Co. Limerick, has been named as the recipient of the César Award for the Best Hotel in Ireland for 2023 by The Good Hotel Guide.

The  Good Hotel Guide editors noted: 

"Warm Irish hospitality and superb food are on offer at this Victorian country mansion, where the restaurant is a destination in its own right. Angel Pirev uses food from the kitchen garden and orchard to help create his well-received menus, served in the deep-blue restaurant with wedding-cake plaster ceiling. Traditional-style bedrooms have fabrics and wallpaper by Zoffany, Jane Churchill, Cole & Son; everywhere there is carefully chosen artwork and furniture, plus vases brimming with flowers."

Proprietor John Edward Joyce said, “An award of this nature is testimony to the wonderful team here at the Mustard Seed. I am blessed to be surrounded by incredible people who are naturally committed to ensuring that every guest’s visit is a comfortable, relaxed, yet amazing and unforgettable experience.”
