The Ashdown Park Hotel in Gorey has shortlisted in a competition to find Ireland's Best Scone.
Hundreds of nominations were received from across the country, and the Gorey hotel, famous for its home-baked scones, has been named in the top ten, and it's now competing in the final for the national title.
The Ireland's Best Scone competition is run by Goodall's and Odlums. The public and a select judging panel will decide the winner. When asked what makes their scones so special, Ashdown Pastry Chef Bernie Finn said it was 'an old recipe handed down through the family, We use only local fresh produce and ingredients to make our tasty scones.'
General Manager Paul Finegan thanked the Ashdown Park Hotel customers who nominated the hotel and he hoped that the judges enjoy their scones as much as customers do.
Until Friday, June 5, at 5 p.m. you can vote for your favourite nominee on the Goodall's website. Public votes will account for 50 per cent of the overall score.
