Gougane Barra Hotel
In the details of Natalia’s recipe for Gougane Barra scones, included on the Gougane Barra Hotel website, we are counselled that “It feels good to make scones, everyone loves them.” Well, isn’t that just the very thesis of Neil and Katy’s Gougane Barra Hotel itself! The way the team run this magical hotel feels good, and that is why we all love it. They make their pear and almond scones – and their poached eggs on Lynch’s toast, and their Aga-roasted chicken with Gubbeen bacon and rosemary gravy, and their baked crumble with homemade custard – not just because their customers love them, but because it is a happy and creative act, and a rewarding and generous testament of true hospitality. Neil and Katy and the team are possessed of a rare spirit of generosity, a spirit that is genuinely unforgettable, so when you stay at Gougane Barra, the memories of the hotel, and the lake and the forest and the Oratory, never actually leave you: feel-good memories that are fused into your being.
