The Ir­ish In­de­pen­dent Reader Travel Awards team are de­lighted to an­nounce Iarn­ród Éire­ann as our print and dig­i­tal awards spon­sor for 2019.

“With record num­bers trav­el­ling on our rail net­work, we are see­ing more and more cus­tomers trav­el­ling to ex­pe­ri­ence the best of Ir­ish des­ti­na­tions,” says Barry Kenny, Iarn­ród Éire­ann’s Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Man­ager. “We look for­ward to cel­e­brat­ing those whom Ir­ish In­de­pen­dent read­ers de­clare the best of the best.”

The short­list of those “best of the best” is re­vealed to­day, and the win­ners will be un­veiled on Jan­uary 19 — with read­ers hav­ing nom­i­nated thou­sands of busi­nesses and des­ti­na­tions. Now in their third year, the Ir­ish In­de­pen­dent Reader Travel Awards are the only in­dus­try ac­co­lades nom­i­nated and voted for by read­ers, and are go­ing from strength to strength, with

“The awards are hugely pop­u­lar, with read­ers nom­i­nat­ing and prais­ing the qual­ity of ser­vice ex­pe­ri­enced across the travel sec­tor,” says Cliona Car­roll, INM’s Spon­sor­ship & Events Man­ager. “Iarn­ród Éire­ann is a fan­tas­tic brand to spon­sor the awards, with many syn­er­gies through the award cat­e­gories, geog­ra­phy of nom­i­nees and, of course, Iarn­ród Éire­ann’s net­work.”

Our ex­pert panel of judges, led by Travel Ed­i­tor Pól Ó Conghaile, in­cludes John and Fran­cis Brennan of The Park Ho­tel Ken­mare; Leslie Ann Hor­gan, Ed­i­tor of Week­end mag­a­zine; Niall Tracey, Di­rec­tor of Mar­ket­ing with Fáilte Ire­land, and Week­end food writer Katy McGuin­ness.
