The Restaurants Association of Ireland is delighted to welcome back the Irish Restaurant Awards for 2016.
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.
The Gallery is extremely happy to have been nominated for the Irish Restaurant Awards 2016. It’s great to have been recognised for providing a cosy alternative space for people to relax in and enjoy. A space that incorporates lots of things that I hold dear, such as the environment, music, books and literature, photography (especially of the beautiful Irish landscape), surfing, sustainably sourced coffee and of course fantastic wine!
I look forward to continually developing The Gallery and to use it as conduit to help others perhaps less fortunate, hence joining Amnesty International Ireland.
On that note, I am working with Amnesty to set up a meet up group here at The Gallery, any interested parties should get in touch via the contact page.
Thanks to one and all x
