Nominate your most Down to Earth friend and they could WIN a hotel break just for being themselves

Irish people like to enjoy the simple things.

I mean, sure, we like to spruce things up every once in a while, dress up, go out for a fancy meal. But when it comes to everyday enjoyment, I think you’d be hard pushed to find a group of people who appreciate the easy life more than we do.

Our idea of heaven is lounging around in pyjamas with a mug of tea, and we take pride in how down to earth (most of) our celebrities are. Our favourite dinners are those simple but satisfying dishes that you can whip up in five minutes. I mean, is there anything better than a tin of Batchelors baked beans on toast? Perfection.

Batchelors joins us in all of our simple enjoyments (I mean, they are Irish after all, it’s in their bones). Their homegrown goodness and uncomplicated view of the world aligns with their attitude that simple is best. To celebrate all things Down to Earth, Batchelors wants you to nominate a friend for a Batchelors Down to Earth Award (impressive trophy included of course).

If you’ve got a friend who’s sound and down to earth, let us know – think someone who is always there for you; a straight talker and honest, someone who takes the easy way but not the lazy way. Basically a low maintenance and, above all, top quality friend.

If you’re looking for some inspiration, Jen Hatton and James Patrice have been nominating their most down-to-earth friends already this week. Check out their nominations on the Batchelors Instagram here.

That’s not all though. No siree.

We’ve teamed up with Batchelors to send your friend to Dooley’s hotel in Waterford. Why not cycle the greenway while you’re there? Munch on their famous Waterford Blaa? You will get a two night stay, with breakfast included both mornings and dinner included on one of the nights (a perfect little weekend getaway!).

If you want to nominate your friend to win this fab prize plus the coveted Batchelors trophy, all you have to do is follow Batchelors on Instagram, fill out the form below and tell us a little bit about why your friend deserves the Down to Earth trophy and prize. If they win they’ll be sent down for the two nights plus they’ll win oodles of Batchelors goodies (beans on toast for days!).

So get nominating, folks! And make sure to follow Batchelors on Instagram for more great chances to win some fab prizes.
