The ceremony for the awards takes place in February and the two restaurants shortlisted hail from the same county.
Paradiso, which is a vegetarian restaurant in Cork city, has been nominated for Collaboration of the year and get ready for your jaw to hit the floor.
As well as this, Ballymaloe House in Shanagarry has also made the shortlist for Trolley of the Year.

These new awards are set to rival the coveted ‘World’s 50 Best Restaurants’ but only time will tell if the world is big enough for both of them.
