The César Awards are presented to the Ten Best Hotels of the Year in the Guide. The winners may vary greatly in size and stature but what they have in common is "how well they look after their guests".
|Ballinkeele House - Winner of the Irish Cesar Award from the Good Hotel Guide|
Ballinkeele House, says the review, is "a beautiful country house lovingly maintained to immaculate standards.' Praise comes again this year for John and Margaret Maher's Regency manor house which stands in game-filled parkland, with three lakes, woods, lawns and gardens. Another comment, from a Dutch visitor: 'John, Margaret and their daughter give marvellous personal service in their beautifully kept home.' The family have farmed the land since 1808."

|Six acres of Gardens in 350 acres of estate!|
The walled garden is being restored. Meals are taken communally in a rich-red dining room. Margaret uses her own organic fruit and vegetables in season for her meals. She describes her style as Irish country cooking.
|The bedrooms are sumptuously decorated and very romantic!|
