Now in its 15th year, Blas na hÉireann saw a huge increase in entries across all categories along with many new producers entering the awards for the first time this year. During the judging, which took place over June and July, almost 3000 entries were judged, the highest on record.

The countdown is now on for the big return of the awards weekend, to the seaside town of Dingle. The three-day event will take place from Thursday September 29th to Saturday 1st October with new and exciting additions for visitors and finalists to enjoy. 

The team at Blas na hÉireann have been hard at work to make sure an in-person event can go ahead, for the first time in two years that the great and good of the Irish food and drink industry can gather and enjoy the very best of Irish, and it promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
