2019 Finalists Announced

The Gold Medal Awards, in association with Hotel & Catering Review magazine, are delighted to announce the Finalists for the 2019 awards. These awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of the hotel and catering sector throughout the country over the past 12 months. They also recognise and reward the high standards of excellence in terms of both the physical product and the level of service that is being delivered in our industry.

After 3 months of travelling all corners of the country and visiting every single property that entered the awards, hours of meetings and further discussions, the Gold Medal Awards Judging Panel are proud to announce the Finalists in each category.

Book your tickets and join us on Tuesday, September 24th in the Lyrath Estate, Co. Kilkenny where the winners of each category will be announced.
