We are delighted to announce that the Irish Restaurant Awards is back and will launch on Wednesday 17th January. This is the 15th year of the Awards and we look forward to celebrating the best of the Hospitality Sector with you all. 

As with previous years the Irish Restaurant Awards process begins with an online public vote (hosted via the Irish Times here from 12 noon Wednesday 17th January to 12 noon Wednesday 31st January, then a judging process of National Experts, followed by Regional Events in the four provinces at which County Winners will be announced, then a Dublin Shortlist and then the All Ireland Final at which the Regional and National Winners will be announced.

In 2023 the Irish Restaurant Awards consisted of a roadshow of 4 regional events with almost 4,000 guests in total. The final event was in The Clayton Hotel on Burlington Road and saw 1200+ guests sit down for a five course gala dinner cooked the venue’s renowned chef team, with the help of industry apprentices. The awards have grown year upon year and help showcase the true talent that Ireland’s hospitality industry has to offer.
