Ahead of the public’s vote, Jenny DeSaulles, Sector Development Director, Fáilte Ireland said: “Brunch has become such a popular meal option with brunch venues all over Ireland buzzing with both locals and tourists, particularly at weekends. We would love to know which establishments the public rate and why, as they are hugely important to our food tourism offering.”
Georgina Campbell said, “There is a real sense of occasion about ‘going for brunch’ these days. People truly enjoy the quality and variety of dishes on brunch menus across Ireland and we want to celebrate those who set the bar for this multi-generational treat and help to develop
Ireland’s growing reputation as a food destination. That is why we introduced the Brunch of the Year category to our annual Irish Breakfast Awards in 2019 - and The Fumbally was a brilliant first winner, so we are excited to see which venue will be the most popular in the public vote this year.”
Now in their fourth year, The Irish Breakfast Awards in association with Fáilte Ireland are regarded as among the most important food awards in Ireland, due to their independent, anonymous assessment process and the industry standards they promote.
