Dolans nominated twice in Irish Restaurant Awards 2018

The Irish Restaurant Awards showcase the true talent that Ireland’s hospitality industry has to offer by acknowledging outstanding performers in the sector. Growing steadily from its humble beginnings back in 2009, the awards are now a five-month-long process consisting of online public nominations, judging panels, mystery guest inspections and regional and national events.

This year our very own Dolans nominated twice for the national categories Best Seafood Experience and Best Digital Marketing.

In the first stage of the judging process, online nominations are given a weighting of 20%, while the remaining 80% is made up from a regional judging panel assessment. Both of these results are combined and reviewed by an independent auditor (BDO) to give an overall county winner per category. These winners will be announced at a number of regional events held in March.

After receiving the news of their nomination Mick Dolan said, “We must make a particular mention to our chef Pawel Kiepiela for the work he has done to develop our award-winning new menu since joining our team.”

“We have invested heavily over recent years to develop the restaurant aspect of our business. Working with our head chef we have created a menu that we are proud of. To receive nominations in the Irish Restaurants Awards is a testament to the work that has been done.”

“We look forward to continuing to develop our restaurant offer over the coming years and would like to thank all our regular customers without whom we couldn’t do what we do”.

Dolans will be judged with the rest of the national categories by the National Academy. With the All-Ireland final of the Irish Restaurant Awards 2018 set to take place on Monday, May 14th, 2018 in the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road.
