Kilkenny businesses nominated for food and hospitality ‘Oscars’
A LOCAL hotel, restaurant and trout farm have all made the shortlist of Ireland’s premier food, tourism and hospitality awards.
Kilkenny’s Newpark Hotel, the Restaurant Lady Anne at Creamery House in Castlecomer and Goatsbridge Trout Farm in Thomastown have made the shortlist for the Georgina Campbell 2020 Irish Food and Hospitality Awards, in association with AIB.
Now in their 21st year, the awards recognise the achievements of those in the tourism and hospitality industry, who work to develop Ireland’s reputation as a food destination.
One of Ireland’s foremost food and hospitality writers, the organiser Georgina Campbell said: “This year’s awards have a particular focus on celebrating Ireland’s wonderful industry pioneers,” said Georgina Campbell.
“This means recognising and awarding those who have laid the foundations that have made Ireland’s food tourism and hospitality journey such a fantastic success story and the new pioneers, often next generation family members, who are safeguarding its future.”
The awards will take place at the InterContinental Dublin on September 15.
