“We were delighted to see so many votes coming in from all corners of the globe in support of the diaspora’s favourite Irish pubs,” commented Irish Hospitality Global’s Chief Executive Sarah Murphy on the release of this year’s shortlist, “It’s a testament to the long-standing Irish traditions of warmth and hospitality both at home in Ireland and across the world.
“We look forward to welcoming everyone to Dublin for the Awards ceremony in October.”
