This award recognises the overall best restaurant; one that delivers on all the qualities of an outstanding dining experience – exceptional food, exemplary customer service and a superb atmosphere.
This will be the 8th annual awards since its humble beginnings back in 2009, where 70 restaurateurs gathered in Dublin for lunch to celebrate each other’s successes. In 2015 the Irish Restaurant Awards consisted of a roadshow of 4 regional events – Galway, Belfast, Limerick and Dublin – with over 2,000 guests in total. The final event was in the Doubletree by Hilton Dublin and saw 870+ guests sit down for a five course gala dinner cooked by 5 renowned chefs (previous award winners). The awards have grown year upon year and help showcase the true talent that Ireland’s hospitality industry has to offer.
There are a number of stages in the awards process. It begins with the public nominating their favourite restaurants across a range of categories – Best Chef, Best Cafe, Best Casual Dining and so on. A restaurant needs only one nomination to be considered by our judges but the more nominations the better, as they account for 25% of the total score. The nominations are hosted online by the Irish Times and the results are audited by BDO. The next stage is a meeting among our judges – a panel of experts from all areas of the industry, from all across the country. They will choose their top restaurants in each category and that will be combined with the public votes to reveal our county winners for 2016.
