More about the awards
The Irish Restaurant Awards are brought to you by The Restaurants Association of Ireland and are kindly sponsored by Santa Rita/Sunday Independent LIFE Magazine. The awards are the largest and most coveted awards in the Irish Restaurant Industry.
This year’s event will recognise achievement and excellence in the Restaurant and Hospitality Industry throughout the Island of Ireland in 22 categories. The awards celebrate all aspects of the Industry from Chefs and Restaurants to Food Producers, Local Food Heroes and Cookery Schools.
Nominations for the awards are made by readers of the Sunday Independent LIFE Magazine and members of the Restaurants Association of Ireland.
The awards process runs from the beginning of February 2011 until the 25th of May 2011. It is a detailed and thorough process whereby nominated Restaurants face rigorous scrutiny from the Consumer, Regional Judges, a Mystery Guest Visitor and finally the National Awards Academy.
County winners are announced at a number of Regional Events in the run up to the Main Event on the 25th May in the Burlington Hotel Dublin. Guests at the main event are treated to a five-course menu prepared by the winning Chefs in each of the five regions from the year before.
Legends of the foodie world, this year’s event will see Danny Millar- Balloo House, Garret Byrne – Campagne, Seamus Commons – Knockranny House, Paul Flynn – The Tannery and Eamonn O’ Reilly – One Pico, prepare a sumptuous meal for 800 guests at a glittering black tie event – a fantastic celebration of all that is great in the Irish Restaurant Industry.
