The Irish breakfast is Ireland’s signature dish.
Great article John n Sally McKenna as was your previous report on the all too common shameful breakfast buffets in a certain milieu of Irish hotels.
Yet another post of yours added to the folder for further use in person
Breakfast has become more important to me now than dinner, it's when my senses are alive, undistracted from conversations with friends or wine! It can make or break my stay, so I'm extremely grateful for this compressive and honest article. Not forgetting that breakfast is often the short straw in the hospitality industry, so the hard work and effort put into breakfast dishes and service is even more appreciated.
My family has had the same house in Co. Mayo since the mid-18th century. Some days I think "If I ever win the lottery, I'd like to fix it up and turn it into a cozy farm stay with lovely home-cooked meals."
Michael Vaughan is pure hotelier / host to his very core. Every drop of his DNA is pure hotelier. It did not surprise me in the least when I learnt that he personally ‘manned the stoves’ from dawn. That is one man who has most definitely honoured his family’s multi-generational métier and hospitality tradition. Bravo.
