All regional winners will also avail of comprehensive media coverage including a profile piece in a special Awards Supplement in the Irish Independent on the day of the Awards Presentation on November 20.

The Irish Pub Awards have enjoyed substantial growth each year.

The President of VFI, Padraig McGann, said: “The Irish Pub Awards have helped raise the profile of the Irish pub as a place to visit, enjoy good food and ‘craic’ with music and as a gathering place for locals and tourists alike.”

Chair of the LVA, Ronan Lynch added: “The collaboration between the LVA and VFI means that the Irish Pubs Awards are the pre-eminent pub awards in the country. They celebrate the very best pubs from all over Ireland and highlight the role these outstanding pubs play in the business and social lives of the communities they serve.”

Now in its third year, the Irish Pub Awards are now acknowledged as the definitive industry standard and have gained recognition throughout the trade as a credible and comprehensive assessment of the best in Irish pubs.
