REPRESENTATIVES from some of the country’s top restaurants and pubs gathered at Limerick Strand Hotel for the Munster Regional Final of the 2019 Irish Restaurant Awards that are now in their eleventh year.
Over 550 people attended the third of four regional events where the top establishments in each county were named. Our photographs cover just some of the many awards won on the night by a wide range of venues and the winners from each of Munster’s six counties were selected from categories like Best Casual Dining, Best Emerging Irish Cuisine, Best Kids Size Me, Best ‘Free From’, Best World Cuisine, Best Restaurant Manager, Best Wine Experience, Pub of the Year, Best Café, Best Customer Service, Best Gastro Pub, Best Hotel & Guesthouse Restaurant, Best Newcomer, Best Chef and Best Restaurant and a special Regional award for Munster’s Local Food Hero. The event showcased the fantastic quality of service in cafés, pubs and restaurants of Ireland as well as recognising the hard working teams behind them.
All of those who won at county level will now compete for the Regional and All Ireland Titles, which will be announced at the Irish Restaurant Awards. These will be held in the Clayton Hotel, Dublin on Monday May 13, 2019 and we wish all the Limerick finalists the very best of luck at the event!
