Dublin Restaurants Clean up at All Ireland Final of Irish Restaurant Awards

The All Ireland Final of Irish Restaurant Awards 2022 took place in the Convention Centre Dublin last night, and Dublin restaurants won about half the awards.

Chapter One took home the biggest honour of the evening, winning Best Restaurant.

Almost 900 restaurant and hospitality business owners and staff celebrated their hard work and achievements at the Awards Event. The ceremony saw many well-known restaurateurs, hospitality business, and staff turn out to see prestigious award winners.

Speaking at the Irish Restaurant Awards All Ireland Final, President of the Restaurants Association of Ireland, Paul Lenehan, said; “This has been an outstanding year for the Irish Restaurant Awards, its 13th Year now after a two-year break due to COVID we have surpassed previous years online public nominations with over 100,000 received in June and our Regional Events held in August and September in Meath, Cavan, Cork and Leitrim had almost 3,000 attendees. The Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the existing and up-and-coming talent in the sector and are a reminder that hospitality is nothing without the dedicated and passionate staff in the industry. We are delighted to have the Awards back up and running again, and it has been a fantastic display of what the industry has to offer here tonight in the Convention Centre Dublin (CCD).”

Food outlets were nominated under the categories of Local Food Hero, Best Free From, Best Emerging Irish Cuisine, Best Restaurant Manager, Best Wine Experience, Best Café, Best World Cuisine, Best Newcomer, Pub of the Year, Best Casual Dining, Best Hotel & Guesthouse Restaurant, Best Customer Service, Best Gastropub, Best Chef, and Best Restaurant and finally a new award category for 2022 Best Sustainable Practices.
