Georgina Campbell's Ireland

Georgina Campbell Guides is a small, family-run, publishing company with a big reputation, that specialises in Irish food, hospitality & travel. It was established in 1997 by Georgina Campbell, the well-known food & travel writer. The Irish company’s flagship product is Georgina Campbell’s Ireland – the Guide (All The Best Places to Eat, Drink & Stay).

"Jackie and Joe O’Connors’ B&B is beautifully located on the sea side of the road on the edge of Skerries town, and it is truly unique – how often do you wake up to the sound of waves on the rocks outside your bedroom window?

The unbroken sea views – across the harbour and, to the north, taking in the magnificent Mountains of Mourne – are simply stunning, and all the better for seeing them from such a warm and relaxing base. Unselfconsciously stylish, it’s a comfortable family home with dog beds a-plenty, art materials laid out in the conservatory (classes are held there), plenty of comfy lounging space and welcoming fires – a cosy contrast to the elements betimes...."

Alastair Sawday's

Alastair Sawday was inspired to publish his first travel guide, French Bed & Breakfast, after discovering various ’special’ B&Bs and the extraordinary people that run them while taking groups around France on walking tours. He wanted to highlight places that were a world away from the impersonal, robotic nature of the large hotel corporations. The books were lapped up - the initial 10,000 copies sold out within six months - and so, in 1994, Alastair Sawday Publishing was born. It seemed to touch a raw nerve with thousands of readers; they obviously want to stay in special places rather than the dull corporate monstrosities that have disfigured so many of our cities and towns.

"The cottage perches on the water's edge; any closer to the sea and you'd get your toes wet. A terrace runs at the back, perfect for an early morning coffee when you can watch the birdlife and the occasional curious seal bob past. Most rooms make the most of the view, and French windows lead out to the terrace from the wonderfully tall, light living room, its fire stocked with turf to keep you cosy on stormier days. Beds with embroidered pillowcases face the sea; others come with a handsome wood four-poster; as you might expect, there's a nautical theme in the art on the walls..."
