Vice President of the Restaurants Association of Ireland, Mark McGowan, said; “Now in their 13th year, the Irish Restaurant Awards returns after the 2020 Awards were cut short.

"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.

"The Awards continue to showcase the incredible food that is on offer in the cafes, pubs and restaurants of Ireland. With well over 100,000 nominations received from the public this year, the standard for the judging process was higher than ever.”
