Galway Daily life & style cocktails at the Dáil Bar are the best in the world

Galway’s Dáil Bar has been declared to have the best cocktails of any Irish pub in the world at the recent Irish Hospitality Global Awards.

Cocktails at the Dáil Bar are clearly something special as the city centre pub won the ‘Best Cocktail Experience’ award, not just for Ireland, but for the entire world.

The finals of the Irish Hospitality Global Awards took place at the Mansion House in Dublin last week after over 20,000 votes were cast for the shortlist online.

Aside from cocktails, winners were crowned in ten categories including best chef, best marketing campaign, and of course Pub of the Year, for Ireland; the Americas; Europe; Asia, Africa, the Middle East & Pacific; and the Global awards for the best of the best.

The Dáil Bar said that they are “beyond happy and excited” to have been found to have the best cocktails in the world.

The overall winner of Pub of the Year in Ireland was Doheny & Nesbitt, Dublin, and O’Casey’s at The Hague was declared to simply be the best Irish Pub in the world.

Other standouts from around the globe included Seumus’ Irish Bar in Picton New Zealand and The Celt in Texas.

A Lifetime Achievement Award was also presented to Mr John Teeling of Teeling Whiskey.

Sarah Murphy, CEO of Irish Hospitality Global, commended all of this year’s winner, “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.”
