The Mustard Seed is honoured to be bestowed with the title of 'Hideaway of the Year' for 2014 by Georgina Campbell. At the awards ceremony in Dublin, attended by the crème de la crème of the hospitality industry, Georgina spoke about the lovely idea of a Hideaway and how that particular award was one of the most sought after. Presenting it to Daniel Mullane, Georgina began by saying
“It would be hard to imagine anywhere better as a hideaway than Dan Mullane’s spacious Victorian property, which is set on seven acres of lovely gardens, with mature trees, shrubberies, kitchen garden and orchard - and very luxurious accommodation. This magical place has immense appeal to many different types of guest and, although it is actually a four star hotel, nothing could be further from the image that normally conveys. It is an hotel like no other - its many special attributes make it a place apart. In addition to sumptuous accommodation in the main house, three newer superior suites offer a more contemporary style along with a residents' lounge and a small leisure centre with sauna and massage room. Elegantly luxurious yet homely, with log fires, deep sofas and discreet hospitality, it makes a perfect destination for a romantic break or a few days pick-you-up in demanding times.
For a break with a difference, take a step back in time with a retro adventure on the highways and byways of County Limerick.
