The Irish Hospitality Awards 2022 are organised and hosted by Creative Oceanic but are voted by the Irish public. The awards acknowledge everyone who works hard to enhance the country’s reputation, from restaurants that serve tasty tapas to bars and clubs that keep Ireland alive.
A spokesperson for The Irish Hospitality Awards 2022 said: “It was lovely to partake in this celebration and the hard work of Irish hospitality should not go unnoticed. The winners enhance the country’s reputation nationally and internationally and we would like to congratulate all winners for their achievements, it was very well deserved.
“Working within the hospitality industry can be challenging at times and the last few years have shown that, so these awards aim to thank those that work hard within the hospitality sector and contribute to those who make Ireland a beautiful place to visit.
“We would like to congratulate all finalists and winners for their outstanding hard-work, and for their amazing achievements.”
