This Galway Bar Officially Has The Best Cocktails In The World, And It's Not The Front Door

The annual Irish Hospitality Global Award winners were announced last week at a prestigious Gala Dinner held in the Mansion House.

Having announced the shortlist of finalists for 2019 way back in July, nominees had quite the wait before finding out. The shortlist was compiled following an online voting campaign which received over 20,000 votes from the public.

Representatives from the Irish hospitality sector, from all around the globe, came together to celebrate the best of Irish pubs both home and abroad.

Homegrown winners on the night included Toners Pub on Baggott Street for the ‘Best Whiskey Experience’, John Mikes Bar in Limerick for ‘Best Community Pub’ and Café en Seine for the ‘Best Marketing Campaign’.

But the real showstopper went to The Dáil Bar in Galway who won the ‘Best Cocktail Experience’ not only in Ireland but in the whole WORLD.

Irish pubs in Germany, Dubai and New Zealand were also honoured at the awards, now in its ninth year.

I think the only thing for it is a celebratory cocktail (or two or three).

Fair play.
