O’Casey’s in The Hague wins Global Pub of the Year at the Irish Hospitality Global Awards 2019

Global Pub of The Year 2019 O'Casey's, The Hague

Representatives from the Irish hospitality sector worldwide were out in force on Tuesday 8th October to celebrate the annual Irish Hospitality Global Awards in the Round Room at the Mansion House in Dublin.

After a lengthy search for the best of Irish pubs in all corners of the globe, which included an online public voting campaign to determine this year’s short list, the pubs at the top of their game both in Ireland and abroad were crowned winners in the ten awards categories, which included Best Chef, Best Bar Person, Best Entertainment Experience and the highly coveted overall Pub of the Year.

Winners in Ireland included Toners Pub on Baggott Street for Best Whiskey Experience, Café en Seine for Best Marketing Campaign, John Mikes Bar in Limerick for Best Community Pub and Hayes Bar in Glandore for Best Food Experience.

Further afield, pubs from all over the world picked up awards on the night including Fleetenkieker Irish Pub in Hamburg for Best Sports Experience, The Irish Village Dubai for Best Entertainment Experience, Seumus’ Irish Bar in New Zealand for Best Community Pub. The overall Global Pub of the Year 2019 title went to the outstanding O’Casey’s Irish Pub in The Hague.

The 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Irish Whiskey entrepreneur John Teeling for his contribution to the drinks and hospitality sector throughout his career.

Sarah Murphy, CEO of Irish Hospitality Global, commended all of this year’s winners: “It is fantastic to see so many publicans from around the world join us to recognise and celebrate excellence within the industry. We must embrace and champion our success stories as we look for opportunities and new trends to offset rising challenges within the sector.”

The awards ceremony, now in its ninth year, was hosted by broadcaster and comedian Oliver Callan and featured a rousing performance from the Dublin Gospel Choir.
