Irish Made Awards 2019

The Irish Made Awards are back and bigger than ever!

Nominations are now closed.

Are you an Irish business owner or entrepreneur creating a beautiful product in Ireland? We want to find the makers, creators, craftspeople and businesses that make buying Irish so great. Whether you’re a sole trader or an SME exporting internationally, if you are made in Ireland, we want to hear from you. The awards will be open to businesses in the following categories, and an esteemed panel of judges will have the hard task of narrowing down the finalists in each category, which will then go to a live vote on in June.


  • Fashion
  • Accessories
  • Jewellery
  • Textiles
  • Home
  • Gift
  • Furniture
  • Food & Drink
  • Beauty

• The winners and runners-up in each category will feature in a special edition of Irish Country Magazine in October.

• Each of the category winners will receive a once-in-lifetime prize from Kilkenny – the opportunity for their products to be showcased and sold in a Kilkenny store for a minimum of three months*.

• The Overall Winner will have an opportunity to attend Showcase 2020 in the RDS thanks to the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland; and receive an advertising package from Irish Country Magazine.
