Gastro Pub of the Year.

Food in Cork

On Monday, November 12th 2018, Gallaghers Gastro Pub were lucky enough to  have won the title of ‘Best Gastro Pub in the South of Ireland’ at the annual ‘Food Awards Ireland’

Two of our team members travelled to Dublin to attend the event that took place in the Crowne Plaza Hotel near Dublin Airport. The elegant, black tie ceremony was hosted by the well-known broadcaster on Sunshine Radio and best-selling author, Andrea Hayes who presented 26 amazing awards to the deserving winners.

Our team members who travelled from Cork to Dublin to attend were surrounded by talented individuals and businesses, who were being acknowledged for constantly delivering fresh cooked dishes, high-quality of food products, leaving their customers with the best of impressions. Several of the awards were split into local regions to ensure the diverse ranges of businesses from across Ireland are recognised for their exceptional services. We were proud to represent the people and food of Cork and Cork Victorian Quarter to be specific.

Unexpectedly, we were crowned Best Gastro Pub in our region. Emma and Dj, our team members ran to the stage to accept the award on behalf of Gallaghers and they could not have been more excited.

In addition, the awards supported the Make-A-Wish Ireland, an organisation that grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions.

We were thrilled to win as we are passionate about what we do. Providing top quality food in Cork along with music, cocktails and much more. On the night there were many other Cork businesses in attendance such as ‘143V’, The Fat Vegan and many more.
