Hosted by Creative Oceanic, The Irish Hospitality Awards are voted for and decided by the people. They recognise the hard work from every sector of the industry across the country.

From restaurants, hotels, bars, and attractions, the awards nod to the businesses in Ireland that strive to enhance the country’s reputation and keep the country 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.

They also recognised the challenge of working in hospitality, especially in recent years with the pandemic.

“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”.
