Farmhouse Of The Year — Lough Owel Lodge

Aideen and Martin Ginnell farmhouse the “Lough Owel Lodge” won the prestigious Georgina Campbell Award for “Farmhouse of the Year 2015”.

The following is a citation which Georgina read out at the awards on why she thought why Aideen and Martin deserved to win ……

“For many people – especially families who live in cities – an Irish farm stay is just about the most idyllic holiday imaginable.

You won’t get more homely than this beautifully located farm overlooking Lough Owel, which has been certified organic since 2011. On arrival, you’ll pass the family’s donkeys, Sonny and Cher, in their paddock and their gentle presence sets the tone for a comfortable family home where guests feel genuinely welcome. Don’t expect five star accommodation here, what’s special is the authentic rural experience that Martin and Aideen Ginnell offer, including their own organic produce on the table for breakfast. Aideen is a dab hand with the home baking, jams and preserves – and they are rightly proud of this fascinating lakeland area and love introducing guests to its highlights and the ‘real Ireland.’ A great place to wind down and get close to nature”.

It is a great achievement for Aideen and Martin to win such an award and we wish them continued success for many years to come.
