The Irish Restaurant Awards showcase the true talent that Ireland’s hospitality industry has to offer! Growing steadily from its humble beginnings back in 2009, the awards are now a five-month long process consisting of online public nominations, judging panels, mystery guest inspections and regional and national events.
The public chose their favourites across 21 categories including Best Restaurant, Best Casual Dining, Best Chef, Best Seafood Experience, Best World Cuisine and more.
Kildare boasts everything from fine dining to high quality gastropubs, and everything in between! We had some very worthy winners on the night, and Into Kildare would like to wish them a huge congratulations!
