Paul Lenehan, President of the Restaurants Association of Ireland said, “The aim of the Irish Restaurant Awards is to recognise excellence within the Irish hospitality industry. These awards are a celebration and acknowledgement of the hard work put in by restaurateurs and hospitality businesses and their talented staff year-round.
