Winners in Ireland included Toners Pub on Baggott Street for Best Whiskey Experience, Café en Seine for Best Marketing Campaign, John Mikes Bar in Limerick for Best Community Pub and Hayes Bar in Glandore for Best Food Experience.

Further afield, pubs from around the world picked up awards on the night including Fleetenkieker Irish Pub in Hamburg for Best Sports Experience, The Irish Village Dubai for Best Entertainment Experience and Seumus’ Irish Bar in New Zealand for Best Community Pub.

The 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Irish Whiskey entrepreneur John Teeling for his outstanding contribution to the drinks and hospitality sector throughout his career.
