The cork county Business & Tourism Awards 2019

Cork County Council is delighted to welcome you to the Cork County Business & Tourism Awards. Our county has so many successful and innovative businesses, organisations and business people across different sectors and markets that we feel there is a need to highlight and celebrate the best in class activity that emanates from Cork county. 

Together with our Associate Sponsor AIB, media partners The Southern Star, The Corkman and The East Cork Journal and our experienced panel of judges, we’re aiming to give local businesses, large & small, newly formed or established for years, the opportunity to show why they’re the best at what they do. 

3 awards regions – West Cork, North Cork and East Cork. 

Each region will host its own awards programme with the same 11 Awards categories available for businesses from that region to enter.
