Hosted by Bord Bia in Dublin, these awards are presented annually in recognition of excellence in the Irish hospitality industry, with accolades across a range of categories, Reflecting the very best of these eateries along the waterways was Watermill Lodge. Dining at the Watermill is described as "Irish with a French twist", being owned by French Chef and fishing enthusiast Pascal Brissaud, and his Irish Partner Valerie Smith. The restaurant, in a striking thatched building full of character in a sylvan setting on the beautiful and expansive shores of Lough Erne, is complemented by exceptional accommodation and even a private jetty.
Éanna Rowe, Head of Marketing & Communications with Waterways Ireland congratulated the Watermill and indeed praised all the waterbased eateries for the enriching and fulfilling experiences they provide for visitors to Ireland's Inland Waterways.
The worthy winners included a number of establishments that feature in the "Taste of the Waterways Guide", produced by Waterways Ireland in conjunction with Georgina Campbell to highlight the best places to eat and drink along the waterways. Recently supplemented to incorporate things to See and Do, as well as Places to Stay, the guide is available free of charge from and is an essential ingredient in the recipe for a perfect visit to the waterways!
