Two local businesses have been awarded top prize in their category at the Georgina Campbell Irish Breakfast Awards which were announced on Monday at an award ceremony in Dublin’s Intercontinental Hotel which was hosted by Rachel Allen.


Arán Artisan Bakery & Bistro in Kilkenny City won the people’s vote for the country’s best brunch, while the Avalon House Hotel in Castlecomer won the best breakfast in a four-star hotel award.


The Irish Breakfast Awards celebrate the finest Irish food producers and those who take special pride in serving the best breakfasts and brunches in Ireland to tourists and locals alike.


Commenting at the awards Georgina Campbell said; “It is important to celebrate the people and businesses that strive to make the first meal of the day as memorable as any fine dining experience”.


Rachel Allen added: “These awards are unique in that they highlight a meal that is all too often overlooked by business owners as the least important of all their dining options.”


At a separate awards this week, The Lady Helen restaurant at Mount Juliet was awarded a coveted Four AA rosettes for culinary excellence, one of only two restaurants in Ireland and the UK to achieve such an accolade.


Chairperson of Visit Kilkenny, Colin Ahern said: “This has been a great week for the hospitality industry in Kilkenny and we are absolutely thrilled for all three establishments on their incredible achievements. There is a lot of hard work behind the scenes that go into achieving such exceptional standards that these three have achieved and we congratulate them for all their deserving awards.”
