Lovin Locals: Vote for your favourite Dublin restaurant and help them WIN a €10,000 prize

Lovin' Media

Join our #LovinLocals search for a Dublin bar or restaurant that deserves to WIN €10,000…

Here at Lovin, we love our locals and know that Dublin has loads of incredible businesses that deserve our support. We’re always looking for new ways to celebrate our favourite Dublin dining spots, the bars and restaurants that go above and beyond to create an incredible customer experience for Dublin foodies.

That’s why we’re launching Lovin Locals, a Dublin-wide competition celebrating the city’s best cafes, restaurants and bars.

Lovin Locals gives you the opportunity to nominate your favourite Dublin dining spots and help them get the recognition they deserve. Plus, the winning business will take home some incredible prizes!

And there’s never been a better time to support our local bars and restaurants. It’s been a hugely challenging two years for hospitality, as dining spots all around the country were forced to close their doors on countless occasions. These businesses kept many of us going during some of the darkest of days, when a trip to the local could change your entire perspective on a day, from a brief chat over the counter, the sight of twinkling eyes above a facemask or the coffee that felt as significant as a round-the-world trip.

Lovin Locals is our way of giving back and showing our appreciation for the challenges Dublin’s bars and restaurants faced. Whether it’s down to their delicious food and drink, impeccable customer service or gorgeous dining space, we want to know what Dublin businesses you’re loving so we can help give them the recognition they deserve.

Any Dublin bar, restaurant or café can be nominated, and the winning business will receive a prize worth €10,000, as well as media coverage across the Lovin Dublin site and socials.

And it couldn’t be easier to vote for your favourite bar or restaurant!

Just let us know what business you want to vote for using the hashtag #LovinLocals on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or TikTok. You can vote as many times as you wish and extra points will be awarded if an image or video of the business is shared alongside #LovinLocals.

Based on your votes, we’ll choose a list of semi-finalists who’ll all be in with a chance of taking home the Lovin Locals crown and winning this incredible prize.
