“Dolphin Beach, it’s the best place, probably my favourite place in the world. It’s run by a lovely family, the Foyle’s and it’s really laid back and very beautiful with mad, quirky stuff in the room. They let you have the run of the place, and it’s down to the people mainly. People make a place.” - Craig Doyle, Travel show and BBC presenter
