The Food Awards Ireland 2019 welcomed over 300 guests at The Crowne Plaza Hotel Dublin Airport on Monday, November 4th in an annual a celebration of those who work hard to provide us with delicious dishes and unique experiences when we visit their establishments.

The awards recognised the achievements of local suppliers, wholesalers, chefs and restaurants amongst others that always serve the community with the freshest of products and work tirelessly within their establishments to deliver great customer service to their diners.
