Who we are.

The Irish Family Business Awards showcases the best of Irish family businesses throughout Ireland. From SME to multinational, every family business starts with the investment of a family who has a passion for delivering quality products and services to their communities.

Ireland is rich in entrepreneurial family business endeavors across a wide variety of sectors. The awards feature Irish businesses with two or more family members, from brothers to married partners to multi-generational family businesses. The Irish Family Business Awards is the perfect way to ensure Irish businesses continue to grow and thrive in the changing political and economic environment.

The awards were developed to showcase the success of Irish family businesses and highlight the impact of their businesses both in their own communities, nationally and beyond and will take place on Friday the 8th of November at the Crowne Plaza, Blanchardstown.
