The Search for Ireland’s Best Carvery Has Begun! Will your Favourite Make it?

The Search for Ireland's Best Carvery Started! | Great Carvery of the Year

This year, the eight annual Great Carvery of the Year competition will determine the very best carvery offered in a hotel or pub across the island of Ireland. The competition is brought to you by Unilever Food Solutions in association with KNORR and since its launch in 2010, the number of entrants has grown and the positive response from the public continues to increase.

Unilever Food Solutions’ Business Development Chef, Mark McCarthy said: “We have been delighted to see the growth that has taken place with Great Carvery over the years.  It truly shows the importance and enjoyment that both locals and visitors take in gathering for the time honoured culinary tradition. Of course, our judges will be looking for the same standards of excellence as we have in the past – quality of food and staff, cleanliness and value for money.”

The competition heats up during Ireland’s Great Carvery Week from 26th June to the 2nd of July, in which venues are invited to show off their carvery. After the week, a short list of 24 candidates (three hotels and three pubs from each province) will be visited by a group of mystery diners. After that, the provincial winners and Great Carvery Hotel of the Year and Great Carvery Pub of the Year will be revealed in October.

Registration to enter opened on May 2nd and closes on July 16th. Venues can register for this year’s all-island search by visiting
